Re: Hurricane Mathew - off topic

thank you Fortress anchors...!
... couldn't proceed past Stuart, Fl due to engine problem...towed behind a mangrove island near Palm City where I put down two Fortress FX-16 and a manson 35 and manson 45 anchors in an "x" pattern, all rodes leading to the bow...hated to leave "Gracie" for the night but next morning she was still sitting pretty...and retrieving the Fortress anchors was a real job, they did not want to leave the mud...thank you for such a quality anchor and I am glad I had two on board....fair winds,

One more month and the Hurricane season is over! I'm still from Matthew... Glad he missed us for the most part... Thoughts and prayers to Haiti!
