Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

The thing not to forget is that EVERYTHING depends on the bottom, there are bottoms where a plain old Danforth will outperform a Supreme or any other design of the same weight (soft silty bottoms), we have plenty of data to back it up... Over all the new generations anchor allow for better setting ability and holding in hard packed bottoms... a more reliable set... Better package over all. To envelop the challenge of anchoring in soft bottoms we recommend to size up....
There can be a 10 fold difference holding power between a firm bottom and loose silt....
