How to select the right marine anchor

danforth anchor

An anchor is a vital part of the boat and is one of the most widely used items in the marine industry.”. The anchor is used to protect your boat. It is synonymous with durability and resistance to bursting. The type of bottom—mud, grass, sand or rock—will dictate different choices of anchors, as will the size and windage of the marine, the wind conditions and the sea state When choosing an anchor for your boat, it is paramount to consider both your length of the boat, the weight of boat and weather conditions in your area.

Which style or category of anchor?

Choose between the two most common anchor styles, the fluke and the plow, or if you are marine in a small marine, on protected inland waters, the inland type.

The most popular type of anchor is the fluke anchor, also called the Lightweight or Danforth anchor, which includes the West Marine Traditional and Performance2 anchors and is often the only anchor on many smaller marines. Light and easy to weigh, it stows flat and holds well in mud or sand. Its excellent holding power-to-weight ratio means you can use a lighter anchor compared to other types, but it doesn’t hold well in grassy or rocky surfaces. Its flukes and stock (the wide crossbar at the top) are more prone to foul on rocks or the anchor rode.

Plow and Scoop anchors—the “single point” style represented by the Manson Supreme, Rocna, CQR, Delta and Claw—have the best all-around holding ability in varying bottom conditions. They generally reset themselves easily if the wind or current changes direction. The newest “scoop” designs, like the Manson and Rocna anchors, include round “roll bars” that self-right the anchor, automatically turning it right side up.

Plow/scoop anchors hold more effectively in grass, mud and sand. They do not have projecting flukes that foul easily, but their shape makes stowing them more awkward (a bow-roller or bowsprit is the best solution). Heavier power marine and cruising sailmarines often use plows as primary anchors.

For the greatest anchoring security, you should carry two anchors of different styles, one each of the Danforth style and the plow/scoop variety. The type of bottom—mud, grass, sand or rock—will dictate different choices of anchors, as will the size and windage of the marine, the wind conditions and the sea state. Some anchoring situations also call for more than one anchor to be used simultaneously.
