Well Suited Anchors

Bookmark and Share

Sailors have always struggled with the question of what to do with their anchors when underway. All that weight and those sharp edges are fine when hooking onto a gravelly bottom, but can wreak havoc onboard. Enter the AnchorSuit, a neoprene wetsuit-type cover for use on fluke-style anchors. By softening an anchor’s impact points, the AnchorSuit not only protects your boat’s gelcoat and brightwork, it also protects your crew’s toes, especially aboard small daysailers. The AnchorSuit can also be used over an anchor stowed in a bow roller, in which case it protects other boats in the event of a collision.

From $69. Anchor Suit, anchorsuit.com
