PALM BAY, FL, August 21, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The SPADE anchor is safe and easy to use with a unique design that makes it so effective. It does not require the use of any special mooring line or anchoring technique. It uses a low rope-length to depth ratio. It can be easily dismantled into a shank and body for storage or transport. Plow shaped anchors are designed to plow the sea floor, as they move through it - hence their name. SPADE anchors by name, and by action, dig deeply into the sea floor. Once they are within the sea floor, the concave shape of SPADE anchor is designed to compact the sea floor, and thus not to move!
The SPADE anchor is manufactured in three materials (Galvanized Steel, High Strength Aluminum, and Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel), and in eleven sizes. The anchors can handle boats from 18' all the way up to 148' and weights from 2,200lbs up to 150 tons. All SPADE anchors of the same size, regardless of the material they are made of, will work with the same efficiency.
Anchor tests that have been performed by independent agencies have proven that the SPADE anchor is the "Benchmark" (Practical Boat Owner Aug '11) and the "Best Choice" (Practical Sailor Feb '13). The SPADE anchor has been proven around the world and is considered the best form of boat insurance that you can buy.
The SPADE anchor lands the right way up every time. There is nothing for the rode to snag on and foul the anchor. It digs in instantly when making contact with the bottom. The anchor will penetrate deeply because of its cutting edge design. It gives maximum holding without dragging because of its unique concave profile. Thanks to its concave profile and its high holding power, the SPADE anchor will pivot within the bottom during a tide change or wind shift.
The SPADE anchor comes with a limited lifetime guarantee and a full 6-month customer satisfaction guarantee. So, if you are not completely satisfied you can return the anchor for a full refund (minus shipping).
