I use a Danforth for a lunch hook because it's light and can be heaved by hand to get off a sand bar (which, of course, I have never done:rolleyes:) but would not trust one while sleeping. The shanks are quite thin as compared to other anchors so if they get stuck on a rock or log, the shaft is easily bent. They also do not shed sticky mud to reset well but tend to just skip over the bottom once broken out. I'm a firm believer in basic MASS.
