Danforth D4400 Anchor

A few minutes ago, I traded an old 3-piece kedge of 57 lbs for a brand new Danforth D4400 anchor. I have searched the web now for about 40 minutes without find a trace of information on the anchor. It is about 54" high, 41" wide, and has 30" flukes. A rough guess puts the weight around 80 or 90 pounds, but I didn't weigh it, just tossed it into the truck. I did, however, measure it.

My boat is a schooner of 22 to 24 thousand pounds, and I'm thinking of it as a storm anchor with 50' of 1/2" chain and 200' of 1" nylon.

I would appreciate any information on this anchor, or a site that had actual figures.

Thanx, Hawk

Hi Hawkeye,

The nearest I've been able to find is the deepset II 4000: http://www.danforthanchors.com/

Perhaps yours is an earlier version - why not drop them a line and see if they can cast any light on it?

cheers,

Matt

Was "4400" on any materials printed by Danforth and attached to the anchor?

Danforth D4400 is stamped onto the shank, and that is all. It seems to me that before there was the "Deepset II" which carries the code 'TII3000', for a working load 3000 lb anchor, there must have been the 'just plain' Deepset, which I'm thinking might be what I have. Going by the anchors and codes I've found on line, I'm guessing that I have a Deepset anchor with a 4400 lb working load.

I don't think it matters anymore, though, because I can't get it through my hatch and have no way to store it on the boat. It's too big, so I have to sell it and buy something a little smaller.

Thanks for all the help, though.
