Fortress anchors are precision-machined from a high-tensile, corrosion-resistant, aluminum magnesium alloy, and are sharper and able to penetrate faster and deeper into most common sea bottoms than heavier, dull-edged traditional steel anchors which weigh 50% more or even greater.
Additional features include:
Fortress anchors can be quickly disassembled for compact storage as a spare or storm anchor. Fortress anchors let you choose between two shank / fluke angles to provide outstanding holding power in common sea bottoms - a 32 angle for sand, mud or clay, or a 45 angle for soft mud. Fortress Anchors are made from hardened high-tech aluminum magnesium alloy. Fortress anchors are also anodized for a handsome and durable finish.
Anchor size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. Remember that the loads in 42 knots of wind are twice as much as in 30 knots.
Use three-strand nylon rope, 6-12 ft (2-4 m) of chain and a minimum of 5:1 scope. Also, a minimum of 6 ft (2 m) of chain should be used for every 25 ft (8 m) of water depth. For storm conditions use an anchor one or two sizes larger.
