Fortress Anchors are preferred for their lightweight, high-tensile aluminum-magnesium alloy construction, lack of metal-weakening welds, adjustable shank angles (32° for sand and 45° for soft mud), and easy assembly and disassembly. Since 1986, Fortress has outperformed competitors in anchor comparison tests, providing unparalleled anchor holding power at a fraction of the weight. Every Fortress and Guardian anchor comes equipped with Mud Palms, plates that fasten to the anchor crown to increase set speed in any type of sea bottom.
