When a conventional
anchor becomes stuck to an underwater obstruction such as rocks, tree
stumps, vegetation, debris or reef structures, boaters
typically try circling the boat over the anchor. Sometimes with luck,
Other times, the anchor
doesn't come free and instead just pulls the obstacle up to the boat.
Now the boater has to pull the debris aboard and free it up resulting
in a waste of time and more than likely a mess on the boat.
can cause quite substantial damage to coral reefs especially if
retrieved by force.
What is needed is an
anchor that easily dislodges itself from debris and can be retrieved
clean and with minimal damage to reefs.
That is where Hunter's
exclusive range of anchors come in.
Each is equipped with a
pivoting sleeve that freely slides up the shank of the anchor, so
that the anchor can be pulled out of the debris backwards.
All the boater has
to do is to steer the boat to a point directly over the anchor.
The slide sleeve
rotates and slides toward the head of the anchor and the anchor
is then safely retrieved clean with no damage to the seafloor, or
The Plow anchor
has an angled pivot sleeve so that it will spin and seat itself
correctly in your anchor chock holder or pulpit.
