t's almost like someone designed these anchor specifically for use with canoes and kayaks. Features like galvanized construction, folding/locking 4-fluke design, compact dimensions, choice of weights, etc. make these anchors ideal for use with paddling craft. 30' of anchor line and handy stow bag complete the package. Anchor shank has shackle installed for dynamic line connection. Sliding collar keeps flukes drawn up tight against shank when stored and then drops to lock flukes open when deployed. Anchor holds well on most types of bottoms from and to rock. For canoes or kayaks 3 lb. anchor is recommended and measures 12" x 12.5".
