    I too am considering getting a box anchor for my boat. There claim of being able to use half the amount of scope and no chain sounds good so your not swinging so wide in tight areas. How are they in weedy bottoms I have a Fortress FX-11 and wont hold for nothing in weeds. I do like the light weight of the Fortress though.

    I have no experience with the small but the large works on all types of bottoms with my 33', never had one problem. It is a bit heavy though, I might go for the small next time based on some of the feedback here.

    I have a small one for my 30 Baja and it works great. My only complaint is that it won't fit in the anchor locker.

    I see that you live in Annapolis. I live in Edgewater. If you would like to stop by and see what the small anchor looks like, PM me and I'll forward my cell#. Hell, you can borrow it if you'd like.


    OK, looks like I'll have to get the small one. Maybe that's why my arms are so huge

It does a great job for my 43 Nortech as my stern anchor...I tried it last night before I put it on the trailer..I bet it would be a great bow anchor but would get the next size up "large". Good Luck. Jeff
    Hey Jeff-
    Glad the anchor worked out for you. Im glad it is being put to use for such a beatiful boat. If ever in Va. I will buy you a cold one.
