    *Rope recommendation based on 25% of breaking strength. Rope must be in good condition.

    Fortress recommends: 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.

    Fortress Anchors offer a Lifetime Parts Replacement Warranty

    Note: Fortress Anchor was a key supplier of products to support the BP oil spill. Fortress is now offering the refurbished anchors that they bought back from BP. These anchors performed heroically, as expected, during the Gulf Oil Spill with the oil boom containment systems which protected the coastal areas.

    The refurbished anchors have been run back through several manufacturing steps and there are only slight cosmetic imperfections on some of them, most of which would normally occur during the first few uses of the anchor in any common sea bottom.

    Additional Handling Note:
    Most carriers impose an extra handling fee of $14.25, that will be added to your shipping charges if it applies.
