Re: Not your typical anchor question

Although they don't get a lot of love around here, Danforth type anchors actually work pretty well on Long Island Sound. Most of the bottoms are mud, and that's what they are best for. Yes they don't reset well in sudden wind shifts and can get fouled in those conditions, but otherwise they are a pretty good option.
