ROCNA Anchor

Hi everyone. I am relatively new to this forum and I know it is a great place for guidance and advice. I am about to take delivery of a new Ribeye 785 Sport, and I need to fit a 10kg anchor together with 10m of 8mm chain and 30m 0f 12mm warp rope for coding. I have been looking at different anchors and the ROCNA 10kg is my preferred choice. My question is, has anyone got one (how is it?) and will it fit into the anchor locker in the bow? The aperture is 515mm x 270mm x 500mm with plenty of room underneath. I know they are expensive, only the reports are very positive and it is going to be the handbrake for my pride and joy! Many thanks for any views.

I know you have been researching them, did you see this sizing chart I found which gives weights and also measurements?

Agreed - and that's not just because I've got one. I've had a lot of experience with Danforth and CQR anchors too, and the Delta is very impressive and never let me down.

From what I've heard the ROCNA is very good, but it looks awkward to stow in a locker and others may be easier to stow and in practice, just as good.
