Which means that this anchor requires only half the rope length to set as compared to other anchor designs.
During current changes the box anchor rolls over and automatically resets.
Pull the line in to bring the boat over the top of the anchor. The box anchor will pop right off the bottom.
Constructed with high quality A36 steel and hot dip galvanized to industrial standards, the best protection from corrosion. The same construction can be found on many bridges and buildings.
Replaceable teeth allow for replacement or changing to alternative tooth styles.
- Attach a 2:1 scope of rope to your GruffTuff box anchor™. Scope is the ratio of water depth to the anchor line length. For instance, if the water you are putting your anchor in is 10 feet deep you will need to put 20 feet of rope on your anchor to have a 2:1 scope. Essentially, use twice as much rope as the water depth. No lead chain is required. (When purchasing rope we typically recommend purchasing 100 feet of 1/2 inch rope, but this may vary based on your boat size and water depth).
- Turn off your boat, toss the anchor overboard (bow or stern, doesn’t matter). The box anchor will hit the bottom, roll to its side and set within 1 foot. There’s no need to power down. The box anchor holds your boat at up to a 45-degree angle from the bottom, digging the downward facing teeth firmly into the bottom without snagging them permanently on debris. In heavy seas allowing more anchor line out will increase the holding power of the anchor.
- Retrieving it is easy. Pull the line in to bring the boat over the top of the anchor. The lack of upward facing surface area will allow the box anchor to pop right off the bottom.
- This same principal works in wind or current change. The new wind direction brings the boat over the top of the anchor, freeing it from the bottom. But as the boat passes over the top of the anchor and continues towards its new resting place, the box anchor simply rolls over on its other side to set firmly in the new direction. With a traditional anchor the wind changes causing you to have to power up the boat, retrieve the anchor and try to reset it. The box anchor eliminates that nuisance.
