Box Anchor for Offshore Boat Anchoring is our best one.

See all pictures

It is a small galvanized box anchor ideal for boats measuring 18 feet – 30 feet long and for cabin cruisers with a maximum length of 24 feet. The box anchor has flukes that easily dig into softer bottoms and it is easy to pull up too. These types of anchors also don’t require as long a rode as other kinds do.

The Slide is available in powder coated versions to resist rust, which is nice.

Regardless of water conditions this works for small to medium vessels.
