Auckland, NZ (PRWEB) February 27, 2009
Rocna Anchors has released a comprehensive online collection of information on the topic of anchors, anchoring accessories, and the science of anchoring.
The Rocna Knowledge Base at http://www.rocna.com/kb is a comprehensive, indexed and searchable digital encyclopaedia covering anchors and anchoring.
The new website includes a collection of Rocna installation case studies, along with guidelines for designing and building the ideal bow roller. Analyses of independent testing, explanations of anchor classification/certification, advice on sizing anchors and much more anchoring related information is also available online.
Content is not restricted to anchors; major sections focus on the rest of the anchoring system - chain, rope, connectors (shackles and swivels), windlasses, etc. Optimising rode make-up, best practice anchoring techniques, multiple anchor rigs, tandem anchoring and optimising the scope and catenary of the rode for best anchor performance are just a few of the topics covered in depth.
"We are extremely pleased with the new Rocna Knowledge Base" stated Mark Pocock, President of Suncoast Marine Ltd., North American distributors of Rocna Anchors. "Our customers have already been making use of the wealth of anchoring information available, particularly when evaluating the fit of a Rocna on their boat and when selecting their anchor rode. As more customers send us information on their boats, we will expand our indexed database of Rocna installations, making it even easier for customers to enjoy the security of a Rocna."
Five years in testing and development prior to its 2005 release, the Rocna anchor has proven to be the ultimate boat anchor, confirmed by independent testing and positive user feedback.
Available in galvanised and stainless steel, in sizes from 4 kg (9 lb) to 275 kg (606 lb), there is a Rocna for every vessel, from runabouts to small ships.
