Anchor Tests

What he says may be partially true in that a Danforth type anchor has great difficulty in penetrating Puget Sound seaweed, so perhaps the smaller flukes are better. However, after drifting off twice withe the smaller, sharper fluke high tensile, I''m a true believer in the plow. I set a 22lb. plow on 50 ft. of 5/16 chain on an Islander 28.
