Description

The DANFORTH anchor is a High Holding Power stock anchor. High Holding Power means you can reduce 25% of the weight that would normally be required for conventional anchors. The big ones used to be supplied to rigs/dredgers and fixed moorings. This type of anchor is being replaced by other types of mooring anchors in the last 40 years, but still available in certain weights.
