Small is Super!

Since the Bigness Factor poll was so popular I thought I would show everyone the new anchor I'm picking up for my Finnsailer 38. This will put to rest forever the question of how big is too small!

^^^^^^^^^^

I love it. My #1 anchor is a Fortress weighing 4#. Four measly pounds. It's cute. However, it remains to be seen if I can fall asleep hanging on what is essentially a charm bracelet thingy.

Re: Small is Super!

I wonder how small an anchor would hold me in my dinghy...it is new generation after all.....without a biased non scientific test done by the builder/designer of the anchor blowing away all of the competition, I just don't know if this would be the best or not..

I'm installing a lovely little windlass and some cute chain I found too.
