    My small box anchor came by FedEx today!

    Who the hell made the decision to call this thing "small"???

    :p I thought the same thing, but it still stores easier than a danforth, and works well.

    I use it for my bow anchor and the freebie danforth for my stern anchor.

    Don’t know about oyster shells but it works on bottom of the ICW very well, which is mostly sand. Because of the design I would think the 4 teeth would be able to grab onto a shell bed also. It definitely sets up quickly in the sand

    Make sure you use lock-tight on the shackle threads that connects both the rod to the box anchor & on the other end to your anchor rope. Lots of posts from people who lost theirs because the shackles came unscrewed. I did for mine & no issues so far

    Yes BK but it folds up to be a straight and fits easily in my smaller curved front seat
