Thanks Rick G.
Rick, try these guys in Kingston.
I was talking to the Owner last summer, and they were supplying some OEM offshore boats with anchors...

I did a houseboat trip last year and that thing had 4 fortress anchors and we spent tons of time everytime we moved the boat trying to get those things to set.

It is the largest slide and the largest box they make, I can get the info off my fortress. I will take some photos if you like, they are like new, you can not tell they have ever been used. I will sell them for 1/2 price.

Sounds like the box anchor is the way to go. I will try to contact the various people ho were kind enough to offer their assistance.

Thanks again Rick G.
