NEW ANCHOR DEBUTS UNMATCHED STRENGTH AT 2014 BOAT SHOWS
Published: Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Canada Metal (Pacific) Limited is proud to have worked with West Marine on
the worldwide exclusive pre-launch of the latest Rocna anchor – the Vulcan.
Available in the West Marine Ft. Lauderdale Superstore during the Ft. Lauderdale
Boat Show, the Vulcan generated great customer interest. This marked the first
availability of the Vulcan prior to general release in January 2015.
Embodying rugged strength and elegant design, the Vulcan maintains the
Rocna performance pedigree while offering the greatest possible compatibility
across a wide range of vessel bow configurations, particularly powerboats with a
Despite the great success of the original Rocna, some boat owners had
difficulties accommodating the roll-bar design on their bow. The Vulcan is an ideal
alternative, since the omission of a roll-bar combined with a carefully designed
shank profile ensures a snug fit on the bows of a range of vessels. Platforms,
bowsprits, prods, stays and other protrusions are easily cleared. The shank shape
also encourages self-launching and self-righting on retrieval, ensuring ease of use
for all operators.
The Vulcan features a unique combination of shank and fluke geometry,
ensuring it self-rights and sets quickly even in difficult bottom types, and provides
massive holding power once set. Shank strength is ensured by a unique I+V
profile design, providing improved resistance to bending courtesy of a computer
optimized I-beam geometry. This innovation also improves setting performance,
with the lower V edge cutting into the seabed and minimizing resistance to a deep
and secure burial.
The Vulcan is available in galvanized or stainless steel, and in sizes from 9
lbs. to 121 lbs. And like the Rocna, it features a lifetime guarantee against
breakage and bending.
