If we ever lose it, we’ll be going straight back for a another one

My wife and I bought a Cavalier 37 about 8 years ago and one of the first things we decided to upgrade was the ground tackle. We visited the boat show and spent a few minutes watching the videos at the Anchor Right stand. Being a scientist, I was very impressed with the way in which Rex had performed scientifically reproducible tests on his anchors and compared them to other products on the market.
After talking to Rex for a while, it was obvious to me, that he had made it his life’s ambition to develop the best anchor he could possibly make. As a result, Anchor Right has become a family business that produces a world class product made from top quality materials, which performs extremely well.
When we replaced the plough anchor with a new Sarca Excel No5, to say we were amazed at the difference was an understatement. This anchor sets instantly and we sleep more soundly than we have ever done before. We normally set the alarm for tidal current changes, but there is almost no need, as It has always reset without a problem. On one memorable night in Bramble cove, Tasmania, with 60 knot bullets coming down the valleys on each side of a mountain lifting water 50 metres into the air, the anchor never looked like pulling out. We didn’t sleep, but we felt safe.
It may not be the cheapest anchor on the market, but if we ever lose it, we’ll be going straight back for a another one.
