How to Set a Fluke Anchor - Fortress Marine Anchors 04:24

Setting a fluke or Danforth style anchor is one of the most valuable skills that you could learn as a boater. In this video, we teach you how to set your Fortress or Guardian Anchor in a deep water anchorage and at the sand bar. Remember, when using a Fortress or Guardian Anchor, it's their superior design that creates the holding power, not their weight. As such, you're going to want to make sure you have a long enough anchor rode with enough line and chain to get the flukes to dig in.

This video will help you account for all the safety steps you need to take to get a strong and safe set from your fluke or Danforth style anchor.
