Default Is The Box Anchor Any Good?

I Have A 34ft Powerquest. I Need A New Anchor. I Am Considering The Box Anchor For River And Ocean Use. Anyone Out There Ever Used One.

We have a 25' boat and rafted off a 31 Sonic, a 35 Sonic, a 42 Cigarette and a Scarab 29 on one box anchor and we stayed right where we started.

We have one. They hold in mud, gravel you name it. But the down side is they are very heavy. Our Fortress weighs about 1/3 of the box anchor and holds just as well. With the box you dont need a chain. Just a pain to lift out and up into the boat.

Holds Well On Any Bottom, Does Tend To Collect A Good Bit Of Mud And Must Be Rinsed Before You Make A Huge Mess Inside The Boat.

I was tied up with SummerObsession when he used his for the first time and it worked like a charm He was so proud 'cause he just learned a new knot out of some fishing magazine and got to use it for the first time

Tom,

Before you buy one, you can try mine. We had a 31 Fountain center console, my 32 Fountain Fever, a 23 center console, another 32 Fever and one more small boat tied to one Fortress in Wrightsville beach. There was a strong current also. I went and bought a Fortress the next day.
