    We have a SunTracker Party Hut and so far, no anchor we have used was enough to keep us securely in one spot. We recently anchored in an area where there was a fairly strong breeze and didn't think we would be able to stay put for long. We usually have to anchor but keep an eye on where we are, pull anchor and move away from shore periodically. We were able to enjoy ourselves for a couple of hours, never did have to pull anchor and relocate... we stayed put.

    received broken due to the packaging from overtons...after having to get strern with the rep they sent me a new one....the packaging was really bad on this as well, but the anchor was intact......used it during a storm with high winds & currents....held our 21 footer firm...the vinal coating is not real good....bubbled up & alreading rusting under it...I have seen ones at a marina...cost about the same...quality much better....find one of this design elsewhere is my suggestion.

          • The Eye Area Was Complete

            Comments about Overton's Coated 18-lb. River Anchor:

            The eye of the anchor was completely coated in PVC, other anchors I've purchased elsewhere had bare metal which frayed the anchor line.

                A:

                This anchor is recommended for boats up to 20ft, but is really designed for use in mud-bottom lakes and rivers without strong currents. You may want to consider moving to the 18lb Richter anchor (item 76821). This anchor is more aggressive and has better holding power in rivers with more current.
