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.
