G-85 42lb Guardian Anchor for 54'-62'
Boat size recommendations are for boats of average windage and
proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate
protection from open seas. Remember that the loads in 42 knots of wind are twice
as much as in 30 knots.
Use three-strand nylon rope, 6-12 ft (2-4 m) of
chain and a minimum of 5:1 scope. Also, a minimum of 6 ft (2 m) of chain should
be used for every 25 ft (8 m) of water depth. For storm conditions use an anchor
one or two sizes larger.
*Note: Hard sand holding power
figures above represent loads actually achieved on production Fortress and
Guardian anchors under controlled horizontal pull conditions without dragging or
resulting in disabling structural deformation.
