    Great little anchor in a nice red bag. Everything in one place and organized. For my small 1976 West Wight Potter P-14 sailboat.

      Comments about Fortress Anchors Commando Anchor Kit:

      I bought this anchor kit for my 15 ft. Boston Whaler. The kit came with a very nice storage bag for the kit which works well to store the anchor and line. The anchor is Aluminum which makes it lighter and eliminates the potential for rust. The chain is galvanized steel which does have that potential. The anchor requires some assembly involving 8 screws which hold parts in place. It would be a serious mistake not to do that assembly until the anchor was needed. After intallation of the parts that need screws, the anchor can be easily broken down for storage in the bag and quickly reassembled. A complete anchor and line with a nice storage bag at a reasonable price.
