Manson Anchors have proudly released their safest product to hit the anchor market yet- the Manson Boss.
This new anchor (your ultimate safety device) has been designed to operate in all seabeds, a truly multipurpose anchor. The shank has also been specifically designed for powerboat bow roller conformity. The patented features, design and robust construction make it set immediately and hold during the worst of conditions. Use a Manson Boss to sleep easy at anchor and protect your family by choosing the only New Zealand made anchor brand.
Brand new patented Manson Shackle Preventor™:
The Manson Boss has one slot in the shank with two docking stations to enable you to use your anchor in all seabeds. The patented Preventor quickly unscrews and docks on the alternate station to transform the anchor from a fixed shank to a sliding shank for operation in foul ground. The Preventor is captive which means you won't lose it.
. They have used FEA (finite element analysis) optimised for maximum strength and removed material that isn't used, hence the hole in the shank. We used minimum 800mpa high tensile steel
. Made from Lloyd's Register certified high tensile steel
. Shank clearance streamlined to conform to Powerboat fairleads and bow rollers
Roller Flaps/Trim Flaps:
. Ensure the fastest set in even the most demanding seabed conditions
. Raising the holding power by forcing the flukes downwards creating a minimum of 28% deeper setting than other new-generation anchors
Double reinforced nose:
. Focused nose biased tip weight concentration enabled by double thickness laminate layer (DTLL) technology for fastest set possible
Construction of the Manson Boss
Shank (Backbone of the anchor):
• Built using class approved high tensile steel, the same steel used in the Manson Supreme for 8 years without one bent shank. Confidence like this means your anchor is built tough, and will last the distance.
Fluke (workhorse and holding power):
• Reinforced Double Skinned Laminated toe. Provides an extremely strong forward section of the anchor where it attacks the seabed, its seabed penetrating ability relies on this strength.
• Manson presses the concave shape into the fluke. This means the anchor cups the seabed and sets much faster. We use 150 Tonne presses to shape the product.
Wings (setting and aligning):
• The Manson Boss has sure set wings. The wings' shape works to dig the anchor into the seabed as fast as you need it to. The angles and shapes have been developed to roll the anchor to setting angle as fast as it can.
All Boss anchors are "guaranteed for life against breakage". **Damage by deformation or bending is not covered by this guarantee.
MANSON BOSS DUAL SHANK:
The Manson Boss has dual modes of operation in one slotted shank. Using the patented shackle Preventor, the anchor transforms from a standard anchor to a sliding shank anchor. The slot has two docking stations on it. The Preventor is simply loosened and moved to the opposite end of the shank and tightened on the alternate dock to change between modes.
When you are using the long slot, it means that if your anchor becomes fouled in rocks or coral, the shackle can slide forward and pull the anchor out from the front which aids retrieval. It's like you take a fish hook out the same way it goes in. Always remember, you never retrieve a fouled anchor by trying to pull it out from directly above. The idea is to pull it out the same way it goes in, ie back the anchor out of its location.
When you're using the short slot the anchor will remain buried even with major windshifts. The sandslot is ideal for all sand, mud weed and grass conditions. The sandslot is also the recommended attachment for anchoring in extreme wind conditions.
