    SailingFan,

    Thank you for your message. Fortress is a Danforth-type anchor that is precision-machined from an aluminum-magnesium alloy, which insures easier handling along with faster setting and deeper penetration in common sea bottoms compared to traditional, much heavier steel anchors.

    Additionally, the Fortress offers adjustable fluke angles for outstanding holding power: 32 for common bottoms, 45 for soft mud.

    In recent Chesapeake Bay soft mud tests with the boating media present, a 21 lb (10 kg) Fortress anchor out-performed 10 competitive steel anchors weighing 35-46 lbs (16-21 kg) by a significant margin when set at the 45 angle for this bottom condition.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance and feel free to contact me directly at: brian at fortressanchors.com or 954-978-9988

    Safe anchoring,
    Brian

    Please forgive me, but I am attempting to learn the difference in the Fortress and the Danforth designs. Could you offer some information relative to this?
