Definitely a mooring anchor candidate...with a swivel, of course.

What's it made of? Looks like bronze. . . Which can sell for $9 per pound . . .

I believe several years back these had an issue with the stock bending. West marine was offering their excellent return policy. If you have the reciept you may still be able to return it. I'm fos which is like lol but you can't say it aloud this is a family forum. Little stumps sticking out of my forehead symbol ( can we actually just have the real symbol on an iPad or do I just keep making up descriptors?) I'm tempted I'd stick it nnw of my bow nnw of Irene.

Don't think West Marine was selling 1,000 pounders, I could be wrong though.

Re: Storm Anchor or Yard Art ?

Loquat -- just curious -- did you go see it, or call the seller? I searched for the original Craigslist ad and couldn't find it, which made me wonder if it was sold.

Re: Storm Anchor or Yard Art ?

I talked to the seller. I don't think I will go get it. I talked with him a couple days ago andd they are still for sale. My hurricane plan is to get out of the way so I should not ever need it. He also has 250#ers. for $250. Use the number listed in the first post. The 250 would make a great storm anchor or mooring for up to a 40' boat. The 250 photo attached-

Re: Storm Anchor or Yard Art ?

Even the 250#er is a monster, I don't think I could handle it on deck alone. The only way would be to rig it from the dock and hang it over the side until you got to the place you wanted it.
