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.
