New Brochure Contains Valuable Tips For Safe Anchoring

 In News

In an effort to provide an easy reference guide for boaters on safe anchoring techniques, Fortress Marine Anchors has created an informative brochure titled The Ultimate Guide to Safe Anchoring. This new guide also helps to dispel common myths regarding anchor weight in relation to holding power.

An overview of proper anchoring procedures is clearly outlined with graphs and charts in six critical areas. One valuable chart in the guide is a Horizontal Loads Table, which is published by the American Boat & Yacht Council. This chart is a good reference when determining the boat’s holding power requirements in different wind speeds. The guide also highlights important information on the use of adequate scope and useful tips for power-setting an anchor.

Fortress Marine Anchors supplies this guide to US Power Squadrons and US Coast Guard Auxiliary branches for their boat safety courses.

The Ultimate Guide to Safe Anchoring is available for free by calling 800-825-6289 in the USA, or 954-978-9988. It can also be requested or viewed on Fortress Marine Anchors’ website,
