Fortress anchors

Fortress anchors work great, just be sure to use at LEAST 1'' of chain for each foot of boat length. We use one on our 33'' boat with great success in many anchoring areas. However, our favorite anchor (and fastest setting and easiest to retrive) is a bruce. Our CQR works fantastic but she digs in so deep that retriving it can often be a real pain in my back.
