This is the third anchor I have had to purchase for my boat. I purchased an anchor that got great reviews which had the ring that went down to the bottom in the event of a snag only to discover that, in a current, a slight gust of wind could cause you to break free. Then purchased a heavy steel PVC coated anchor. Basically, in any wind conditions, I found it almost impossible to stick. Mind you, I am in an Explorer 19TV, hardly a big heavy boat. So I finally broke down and purchased the Fortress anchor. What a relief! This anchor is lighter, by far, than the other two, and sticks under any conditions. I anchored at the Galveston Jetties in 30ft of water with a strong outgoing tide and stuck instantly. Then again in deep water in the Galveston Ship Channel and stuck instantly. Anything I have thrown at this anchor, it has stuck instantly. Mixed sand & shell; sticks instantly. Soft mud; sticks instantly. I cannot endorse this anchor and design enough. It is notably easier to retrieve than the heavier anchors. Even my wife doesn't mind dealing with it. If ever there was a product worthy of the investment, this is it.
