Newest anchor test on the internet

I am hunting for the Manson boss for purchase and I run across the Fortress anchor video below.

It had to do with the two cats that scattered. Cats are always a problem. Ask any monohuller.

Re: Newest anchor test on the internet

Now we know where that new anchor that one bolts together got it's idea from.

Driveways/beaches are fine... but you really should test them in the water.

Re: Newest anchor test on the internet

This is a definitive test, showing that FX-125s are completely useless, the new pariah anchor. . . . Thank goodness someone had the scientific rigor to design and carry out such an experiment.

Re: Newest anchor test on the internet

I've heard that the FX-55 performs even more poorly. If anyone in the bay area wants to get rid of one of those dangerous 55s, I'll be happy to dispose of it for you. Free.
