Danforth Sand Anchor
The Danforth style anchors have the advantage of being a very low profile and easy-to-stow anchor.
The triangular-type shape lends itself ideally to anchor lockers especially on fibreglass production line vessels; heavily galvanised for protection from corrosion. This design has maximum penetration with strong wide flukes which dig in quickly and deeply.
For high holding power, versatility and light weight these are best suited to sand, mud, shale and kelp. Be aware of cables, rocks, reefs and shale when anchoring.
