Anchoring Packages Take Out The Guesswork
Too often, owners are unsure of what size anchor and how much rode to purchase, how to connect the chain and proper splicing methods. Fortress Marine Anchors takes out the guesswork by offering three complete anchoring packages perfectly sized for everything from small bass boats and pontoons to large sailboats and cabin cruisers.
Fortress anchors are unlike any other. They disassemble quickly and easily for storage. They’re exceptionally light, yet have commanding holding power. In fact, its largest model, at 69 lbs., was chosen as the main anchor for the Coast Guard’s 353 ton, 154′ Sentinel-class of cutters.
With the Fortress Commando Small Craft Anchoring System, everything needed to properly and safely anchor a boat is neatly packed in a convenient DuPont Cordura® storage bag. The rust-proof and highly efficient Guardian G-5 anchor is shackled to 6′ of 3/16″ galvanized steel chain. This is connected to 150′ of 1/4″ double-braid nylon rope. Developed for boats 12’–16′, it weighs a mere 3 lbs.
Fortress FX-7 and FX-11 Complete Anchoring Systems boast anchors that adjust for different seabed conditions. Performance-driven, they’re made from precision-machined, marine-grade, aluminum-magnesium alloy. Both come with 15′ of 1/4″ proof coil chain spliced to 250′ of 3/8″ three-strand rope and a 1/4″ shackle. The FX-7 weighs 4 lbs. and is for boats 16’–27′; the FX-11 weighs 7 lbs. and is for vessels 28’–32′.
