Ditto & 100% agree!

It is funny to read the results people have with anchors. Other than loosing a few due to rope breakage (my fault) I always manage to get a set with the Danforth's or the Fortress.

They have changed their size designators over the years. I have the current "Large" size. It used to be called 'medium'.

As Craig said, its one of the best boating accessories I have ever paid for.

You learn something new everyday! I only had 4 messages in my inbox, BUT I didn't realize I had to empty out my sent box.

Done!

Have a good weekend.

i use a small box anchor and would swear by it. i also have the other style anchor as a back up but have never had to use it. for your size of boat, slide anchor recommends the large anchor but the guys on here that have used them could tell you for sure.
