Marine News from the Great Lakes

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

bow pulpit.

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.
