STAINLESS STEEL (316) Danforth Anchor 11lbs (5kg) Marine Grade Polished 

This is a beautiful anchor, highly polished. The current pictures do not do it justice.

This is for one (1) quality marine grade stainless steel (AISI 316) 11lb (5kg) Danforth style anchor. The anchor is approx 20" (510mm) in length. Not to be used for overhead lifting. This anchor is a suitable size for boats in the range of 15 to 28 feet in moderate conditions. 

American Richard Danforth invented the Danforth pattern in the 1940s for use aboard landing craft. It uses a stock at the crown to which two large flat triangular flukes are attached. The stock is hinged so the flukes can orient toward the bottom (and on some designs may be adjusted for an optimal angle depending on the bottom type). Tripping palms at the crown act to tip the flukes into the seabed. The design is a burying variety, and once well set can develop high resistance. Its lightweight and compact flat design make it easy to retrieve and relatively easy to store; some anchor rollers and hawsepipes can accommodate a fluke-style anchor.

A Danforth will not usually penetrate or hold in gravel or weeds. In boulders and coral it may hold by acting as a hook. If there is much current, or if the vessel is moving while dropping the anchor, it may "kite" or "skate" over the bottom due to the large fluke area acting as a sail or wing.

AISI 316 stainless is a premium grade of stainless and is considered by many to be best in class. 316 stainless is corrosion resistant and very durable even in the harshest of conditions.
