The Heavyweight Champion, 2011 Practical Sailor Magazine's Best Choice in the larger anchor category. In extreme conditions, the working anchor on a yacht must not only have good holding power but set quickly and perform well in a variety of bottom conditions.
"The Ray does make an excellent general – purpose anchor for serious cruisers likely to encounter challenging conditions regularly".
"2008 Practical Sailor's Best Choice for difficult conditions (bad bottom/short scope) is the Manson Ray".
The Manson Ray is certified to Lloyd's Register as a HHP (High Holding Power) anchor. It is fabricated from the highest strength/quality steel or stainless steel and is proudly manufactured in New Zealand, the home of the blue water sailor.
