Does your anchor refuse to set? Or skip along and feel like a fish is biting it?

NOT WITH A HURRICANE ANCHOR!



See how quickly the anchor sets and stops the boat in just seconds!

Less Rope + Less Chain = Less Mess!

Hurricane Boat Anchors can set and function on a 2:1 scope in most sand and mud bottoms.

Compare this to 5:1 with all other anchors... 


What does that mean?

No more overshooting your spot!

Get your boat anchored faster, easier, and with less line than you ever thought possible!

A More In-Depth Look At Anchoring

 Traditional fluke or plow type designs rely on needing to penetrate very very deeply to build up any type of resistance, or they will drag. Even once set, they can still break loose.

 

Stopping The Anchor

The revolutionary design of the Hurricane Boat Anchor makes it the first ever to utilize a “backplate” at the rear of the anchor.

The concept is quite simple actually – if you stop the anchor, you stop the boat. The backplate acts as a parachute. Or can be compared to a snowplow, or bulldozer that builds a wall of resistance.

 

 This picture shows early prototype testing on the beach in a controlled environment. Although not underwater, it helps to understand why the design of the Hurricane Boat Anchor is so effective.

After moving one foot or less, the buildup begins to increase. Each inch it moves it just build up more and more resistance until the anchor cannot move. This is why the anchor does not need a 5:1 scope to reach solid ground - it creates its own firm holding ground. 



And this is why the bottom type does not matter to our anchors – sand, mud, clay, grass, gravel, rocks, or any combination – the Hurricane Anchor will stop.

Soft Bottom



In a soft bottom, the flukes will engage the bottom immediately, and many times the anchor will not need to go very deep to generate enough holding power. 

Typically, this is enough to stop the boat, even before the sand/mud/clay reaches the backplate.

Hard Bottom: Skimming = Setting




In a very hard sand or mud bottom, fluke and Danforth anchors will typically feel like they are doing the "skip-set-skip" as they are skating across the bottom. This is because as the flukes are forced down, the pivoting handle begins to lift up if the anchor is not set at the perfect speed, and with a 5:1 or more scope.

Now compare this to the fixed handle of the Hurricane Anchor, and the revolutionary design. The Hurricane Anchor will essentially "skim" the top for the first few inches until the sand/mud/etc reaches the base, which will then begin to draw it down.

What this "skimming" does is ensure the anchor won't skip - because regardless of the bottom type you are in, once the sand, mud, gravel, clay, weeds, etc reach the beginning of the base (as indicated by the black line) then we know that anchor is going down and will set. 

The physics of the anchor, and it's design nearly guarantee a set at that point and it cannot skip or drag. Now combine that with the backplate, and you have virtually a zero chance of the anchor ever skipping or dragging.
 
The weight of the buildup on the anchor adds to its holding power, which allows this anchor to function at 2:1. This is why the bottom type does not matter to the Hurricane – even in soft mud like pudding!
