Okay hold on a second. I keep reading about how stainless steel is unsuitable for use below the waterline. So how come I see so many stainless anchors?
My guess is that aluminum is considered too light... my current anchor is a fairly large but aluminum fluke, and it's surprisingly tricky to set. Also I wouldn't trust it under heavy load, especially after a wind shift; if it holds, the torque would probably bend the shank.hmm, so if stainles is so poor under these conditions what about aluminum?
