New Complete Anchoring Systems Include 25% More Rope
Whether the product is used as a primary anchor or conveniently-stowed backup, Fortress Marine Anchors are well-known for their exceptional holding capability. Now, the company is offering two of its most popular models in convenient, ‘Complete Anchoring Systems’ that include chain, a shackle and 25% more rope than the competition for safer sets and anchoring in deeper water.
Fortress Marine Anchors are made in the USA from a rust-proof, marine-grade aluminum-magnesium alloy. They’re incredibly lightweight, yet provide superior holding to steel anchors weighing twice as much. Additionally, they’re quick and easy to assemble and disassemble.
Two large, precision-machined and sharpened flukes ensure that Fortress Anchors set fast and dig deep. Unlike others, they’re easily adjusted from a 32° angle for use in sand and clay to 45° for soft mud. Unique Mud Palms are included to optimize setting performance in problem soft bottoms.
Weighing only 4 lbs., the Fortress FX-7 model is for boats up to 27′; the FX-11 accommodates vessels up to 32′ and weighs 7 lbs. Both ‘Complete Anchoring Systems’ include 15′ of 1/4″ proof coil chain that is spliced to 250′ of shock-absorbing 3/8″ three-strand nylon rope and a 1/4″ shackle. They come with an informative Safe Anchoring Guide.
Fortress Marine Anchors’ FX-7 Complete Anchoring System costs approximately $349, while the FX-11 is $389.
