Fortress anchors are made in the USA of marine-grade, aluminum-magnesium alloy. Although they’re much lighter than traditional heavy steel anchors, they’re so strong that they’re used on 154′ US Coast Guard cutters. Their sharpened flukes can be adjusted to 32° or 45°, to optimize for different bottom conditions. Eight models are available for boats up to 150′; prices start at $99.99.
