Manson Boss Anchor
Shipping weight reflects calculated Dimensional Weight and is not actual product weight - see here for details.
Manson Boss anchors feature a slotted shank and patented Shackle Preventor™ that together allow you to attach your anchor at the rear of the shank for sand seabeds or forward for rock seabeds without the need to change shackles. Simply loosen the Shackle Preventor™ to move it between locations in the slot. The Shackle Preventor™ is "captive" in the slot, which means you won't lose it. The reinforced, double-skinned, laminated toe provides a strong forward section for better penetration of the seabed, and the concave flukes cup the seabed for a faster set. Manson Boss anchors are compatible with all bow rollers, are designed specifically for powerboats and come with a lifetime guarantee against breakage.

Manson Recommended Sizing Specifications:
- Anchor sizing chart should be interpreted as a guide only
- Many factors influence anchor size selection i.e., whether the boat is a heavy displacement or a light displacement craft and how much windage the vessel has
- Chain size, weight and length is critical to anchor performance and if in doubt use larger chain
- Vessel usage should also considered, i.e., primarily fair weather day outings versus extended coastal or offshore cruising
- If in any doubt about anchor selection always use a bigger anchor
Additional Handling Note:
