Matt,

Youíre welcome to take a look anytime at my anchor set up, message me when youíre going to be around.

Jimmy Green Marine offer calibrated chain and joining links, I just ended up buying 50m in one length for peace of mind. Iím sure the link would be ok, but as I was upgrading to a Rocna I chose not to cut corners.

Message me when your next on the Hamble, I wonít be down for a few weeks now as going away next week, and busy this.

We have the 415, for taking it offshore we have upgraded to the Excel (not sure of weight but must be around 20kg). We also have 70m of 8mm chain and another 50m of rope. The boat came with 30m chain and I used a stainless joiner which is perfect and goes through the gypsy like a regular link.
Upgrading the anchor from a Delta would be a good idea.

Matt - you can join chain but you'll reduce its strength. I changed from a 15kg Delta to a 20kg Rocna keeping the original 28m chain/30m cable for use with the Delta as a backup anchor. The bower now has 50m chain with 30m cable. I also have 12m polyester as a snubber which I regard as essential kit.   

Like me, I see you're intending to anchor frequently. If it really comes on to blow you'll want to have the utmost confidence in your ground tackle. Mine did nicely in sustained 40+ kt winds; if I'd simply joined extra chain I think I might not have slept so soundly.....

Suggest G40 galvanised long enough to give you 7:1 scope in the depths you're likeliest to drop anchor in if you're heading to more remote areas. Beyond 7:1 the law of diminishing returns becomes compelling.

The photo attached is the 418 locker with 50m of 8mm chain. You could fit a bit more in, but not much.

I am planning to upgrading my delta anchor on my 6 year old 415. I was planning on a rocna but like the look of the excel which might sit better on the bow fittings. Did yours fit well, any modification to retain the anchor required? thx David

Hi David, I did have to modify the lid a little, just made the gap where the shaft of the anchor enters a little bigger, and the retaining pin, I filed about 1mm off the small branch that acts as a twist lock, so it went through the anchor ok. All good now very happy with the anchor.

I'm thinking of fitting a Lewmar Epsilon in place of my Delta, it has the same shank geometry and so will go straight on the roller without any issue, and it is a modern anchor shape.  To be honest we haven't had much issue with the standard delta except in mud when it does plough a bit, so we just move, or thick weed which is always an issue.  But as the Epsilon is better and a drop in upgrade that will be my choice.

Based on very recent test done by SV Panope on you tube i would avoid the epsilon, test results were poor. Ultra has same shank shape as delta just with oval section andd fits the roller in same way and a much better performer than the epsilon.
