What weight is good for a pontoon?I have a fortress anchor and love it. Have never had a issue staying put. Also like how light weight it is.
With my Digger anchor.......I don't have to use a chain and if I get stuck or caught on something or just want to retrieve the anchor to leave........I pull the line until I'm directly over the anchor and give it a good tug. The flukes release and it comes right up. Very simple.I cried when I had to cut the rope on mine. It was hopelessly caught in the top of an underwater tree.
After an hour of trying to get it free, the knife came out.
I like this! Am I correct in presuming that this type would not require a chain? And how much line?View attachment 21504
I've had really good luck with the Richter anchors. They hold very well and are fairly compact for storage. Not exactly cheap but quite a bit cheaper than the box anchor or Fortress. I've used the 18lb on a 23' pontoon in a variety of different conditions and it's been great.
