A light-duty, easy-to-retrieve fluke anchor for moderate conditions.
This anchor combines the firm penetration of its traditional fluke style with a slip ring that makes it especially easy to retrieve in the event of a snag. Anchor chain should always be used with steel fluke anchors to provide the weight necessary to maintain the proper approach angle for setting. These anchors require a scope of at least 5:1 (rope length to water depth) in order to set properly. 7:1 scope is recommended. It features a durable PVC coating that protects boat finishes, stays cleaner and buffers rattling and vibration while underway. Pair your anchor with a Color Coated Anchor Chain (sold separately) in a coordinating color to match your watercraft.
Retrieve your Slip-Ring Anchor by backing your boat directly over the anchor, which allows the ring to slide to the crown and release the anchor from the opposite direction.
