The danforth weighs 22 pounds, while the plow is twice as heavy, but never seems to hold as well. If the danforth would fit on my anchor chock, it would be there as my primary anchor.

Good luck,

I absolutely agree with this.. soupy mud is great for a Danforth. Bahamas is also ideal for my Danforth.
