Pivoting fluke (or Danforth-style) anchors use a stock at the crown to which two large flat surfaces are attached. The stock is hinged so the flukes can dig into the sea bed. The fluke-style anchors are self-burying and once set can develop an amazing amount of holding. Light weight and flat design make it easy to retrieve and relatively easy to store these anchors. In case of changing tide or wind direction the anchor tends to break out and then reset.
Construction of this anchor type provides excellent performance on clay, sand and mud bottom, making Danforth-style anchors one of the best choices for these kinds of sea bed. But on the other hand the fluke anchors have difficulty penetrating weed-covered and rocky bottoms.
*Approximate boat length is a consulting characteristic to choose anchor size. Even if anchor fits your boat’s length, sometimes you’ll have to take a heavier one, because of the boat’s weight or above-the-water profile.
