Anchor Test Results: Next Generation No Better than Older Designs

The results of an anchor holding test in the Chesapeake Bay are now available in the October 2014 issue of Seaworth or Boat Insurance: BoatUS Marine Insurance Program.

The winners are the Danforth and the Fortress.

As noted in the article: "The "next generation" anchors did not perform any better than the older designs, and there was some speculation as to whether those anchors were landing upside down and not righting themselves." (Seaworthy p. 8, Oct. 2014).
