Function or decoration?
While sitting on a mooring ball at Sandy Island earlier this week, I took notice of the monohull that was tied to the ball astern of us. Like ZTC, that boat was sporting a nice Rocna anchor on its bow. The boat’s owners had gone one step better though, they had painted the ring of their anchor a nice, bright yellow. As the Rocna anchor frequently buries itself such that the only part that remains visible is the ring, I think this would be a big help when we dive on the anchor to check its set. The only question remaining is, which color would best stand out?
I did not get a pic of the boat behind us so this is a photoshop of our own Rocna.
