Additional Information
Fortress Anchors weigh only half as much as heavier steel anchors, yet outperform them all. The award-winning Fortress design includes fluke angles which adjust from the normal 32° to 45° for increased holding power in soft mud bottoms. Fortress Anchors are made of hardened high-tech aluminum-magnesium alloy for easier handling along with faster setting and deeper penetration in common sea bottoms compared to traditional heavy steel anchors. Tough anodized finish. Easily disassembled for storage. Made in USA. Lifetime warranty.

The Complete Fortress FX-7 Anchor Kit comes with the FX-7 Anchor, the Safe Anchor Guide, 1/4" Shackle, 15' of 1/4" Proof Coil Chain, and 250' of 3/8" 3-Strand Nylon Rope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Achor is excellent...not the hardware! First of all, this is a great anchor that performs well and, does all this without breaking your back! Is it the best anchor that is available for a boat? No, that honor goes to a very expensive plow style anchor, but for the price, the FX7 is hard to beat. What you should know: - The anchor is super light and a joy to handle. - Yes, it's a good idea to add a S/S SWIVEL. - Yes, the anchor NEEDS chain to be effective. I added 10 feet. - Assembly is NOT that complicated and only requires 2 tools. If in doubt, follow the instructions that are in the box. - I agree with other reviewers that some of the hardware is inadequate and could be a lot better. I replaced the 8 nuts and bolts that hold the MUD PALMS to the anchor with QUALITY hardware. LOCK NUTS should be included, but are not! Thus the 4 STAR review.10557831
