Stainless steel 316, treated with mirror polishing, suitable for all kinds of boat boats.
For a sailboat, there are four common anchors. They are the cqr, the danforth, the Bruce, and the fisherman. The first three are buried, and the fourth is surface type.
1. the cqr Anchor Cqr is also known as " plow anchor plow ", invented by Scottish Geoffrey Taylor in 1932. Is the most widely quoted anchor. The fluke can move freely from one side to the other. It is usually made of wrought iron. When the anchor reaches the bottom of the sea, under the tension of the anchor rope, the side of the cat's claw " plough" into the sea bed, with the increase of the anchor rope, the more " plough" the deeper, until the whole anchor is trapped into the seabed. The anchor rope of this kind of anchor generally does not happen winding phenomenon, when the ship drift leads to the anchor rope movement, from another direction to the anchor to the tension, because the anchor can left and right movement, only make the anchor under the new pull to achieve a new balance. This anchor is best suited for mud and second sand, and the grasslands are used sparingly and not suitable for the rock bottom.
2. the danforth Anchor This type of anchor is also more common.2 short Pulp cat catches are active, and approximately 320 offset angle when the anchor is sinking. When reaching the bottom of the sea, the Prominent of the front of the anchor makes the fluke turn in the right direction to facilitate the " plough" into the sea bed. The working principle is similar to the cqr. This type of anchor is not easy to wrap around, but it is important to avoid mixing the anchor with the anchor rope into the sea ( the fluke and the long handle and the rope will be entangled ). This anchor is suitable for mud and sand, not suitable for grasslands and rocks.
3. the Bruce Anchor Large offshore oil fields use more, the maximum weight can be up to 15000 pounds, and the general purpose weight is 20 ~ 150 pounds. The performance of this anchor is similar to cqr, not suitable for grassland, suitable for some rocks, suitable for mud and sand.
4. the fisherman Anchor The most famous anchor. The anchor and the anchor are mutually perpendicular to each other so that when reaching the seafloor, the anchor with the fluke 900 ensures that the anchor can be " plough" into the sea bed. When the anchor claw is perpendicular to the seabed when the anchor is " plough" into the sea, the winding phenomenon may occur when the ship drifts to drive the anchor rope moving. So you need to use other methods to solve, or strengthen observation. This anchor is most suitable for rock, grass, and generally as a second anchor.
In actual use, three anchors are generally available:
cqr ( usually used ), danforth ( stern anchor or second anchor ), fisherman ( special seafloor condition ).
