    I wondered if anyone had experience of Mantus anchors, from what I’ve read it is possible that the 1kg model would hold a Wayfarer and I wondered if anyone had tried that ?  Does anyone have experience of the Mantus in rock beds?

    Hi, I had not heard of Mantus anchors until I read your post which prompted some research.

    The videos are impressive and I have no doubt that when set properly the 1kg would hold a Wayfarer. You may struggle on rocky ground as this review shows;

    The Mantus anchor is meant to be kept in a bag, collapsed and with a guard on the tip, in which case stowage in a Wayfarer is no problem. Anchors with a pivoting shank (e.g. Danforth, plough) work well in a Wayfarer as they will sit flat on the floor and can be quickly deployed.
