Re: anchor type question
I believe the Fortress is aluminum. I had one, they are nice anchors.
Basically, you're talking about putting together a "lunch hook" package. Safe for anchoring for lunch or an afternoon swim. Also good as a light package for complying with racing rules requiring you to carry an anchor, without packing on the weight.
This is fine, but be conservative when considering when to anchor, and what the wind and current conditions are. If you find yourself looking to anchor overnight, anchoring often, or anchoring in blustery conditions, don't delay in upgrading your ground tackle.
