Choose the right anchor

  1. 1. Yacht Sales & Marketing. Simplified CHOOSING THE RIGHT ANCHOR Presented by: www.SeeTheYachts.com, the #1 Listing & Marketing Portal for Yachts & Boats for Sale.
  2. 2. CHOOSE THE RIGHT ANCHOR The kind of anchor to be used varies depending upon the type of water body you would be boating in. current levels are different for rivers and seas the terrain at the bottom of the water body—whether it would be sandy, weedy or rocky the type of boat you have—anchor types for larger boats are different from those for smaller boats
  3. 3. Fluke or Danforth Anchors The most common types of anchors available are: • Fluke or Danforth: The fluke anchor has two large flat surfaces attached to a stock at its crown. The fluke anchors are quite compact and have a surprisingly strong hold on sandy and muddy bottoms.
  4. 4. CQR or Plough Anchors • Clyde Quick Release (CQR ) or Plough: The CQR anchor has a single plow with a pivot attached to it at the shanks end. CQR anchor holds good even when there are changes in the wind velocity and water currents.
  5. 5. Bruce or Claw Anchors • Bruce or Claw anchor: The bruce anchor is good for smaller boats and sandy, muddy bottoms. The bruce or claw anchor holds very well even if there are directional changes of 360 degrees owing to wind and water currents.
  6. 6. Mushroom Anchors • Mushroom anchor: The mushroom anchor resembles a mushroom. It has a wide cap like bottom and is best suited when anchoring in muddy, weedy soil. The mushroom anchor won’t be of much use when in rocky bottoms.
  7. 7. Navy & Electric Anchors • Navy anchor: The navy anchor is well suited for rocky bottom. • Electric anchor: With an electric anchor, the task of lowering or pulling up an anchor happens at the switch of a button.
  8. 8. Anchor right • Anchoring is not as easy as dumping the right anchor into the water and forgetting about it. • Even after selecting the right anchor, make sure you lower it correctly. • Anchoring a boat right takes skill, but can be learnt with practice. • Be extra careful if you are sleeping aboard the anchored boat because wind velocity and currents tend to move it and in extreme cases cause the anchor to come loose.
