Fortress Guardian G-5 2.5lb Anchor
Fortress Guardian G-5 Anchor 2.5 Lbs For Boats 12'-16'

Weight: 3lbs / 1 kg

HOLDING POWER

  • 32° (Soft Mud): 210lbs / 95kg


Benefiting from years of Fortress Anchor Research and Development, Guardian offers excellent quality, performance and economy. Guardian is made from the same high tensile, corrosion resistant aluminum magnesium alloy and manufacturing precision as Fortress.

The use of slightly smaller extrusion profiles and the elimination of some of Fortress' extra features, such as anodizing, adjustable fluke angles, and several machining steps has resulted in a very affordable alternative to those heavy, rust-prone steel anchors.

All Guardian Anchors feature Mud Palms designed to help the anchor set faster in any type of sea bottom. Mud Palms create a "lift" to the crown of the anchor, causing the flukes to point more directly to the seabed. This helps the anchor set faster ... in any bottom.

Feature:
Precision-machined from an aluminum alloy that is as strong as steel, but only half the weight
Results
  • Easy to manage weight

  • Second only to Fortress in holding power tests
  • An affordable alternative to heavy steel anchors

Guardian anchor October 2, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Salisbury, MA United States  
Haven't used it yet but was easy to put together and only half the weight of the old anchor.  Hopefully it will work as well as the fortress anchor on my big boat.

Great Buy August 23, 2017
Reviewer: Dick B from Florida Keys  
This little 2.5lb anchor and 4 ft of chain is the perfect lunch anchor for my 21 ft Center Console.  So easy to handle that even my wife lowers and retrieves it with no effort and it holds like one twice the size.

Lightweight anchor May 31, 2016
Reviewer: John Solak from Nevada - Lake Mead  
This is a 2 lb danforth type anchor. It was easy to assemble. I needed something for my sailboat as the shores are rocky and I wanted to keep the boat off the rocks. Only thing there are four screws that are in tight areas - you will need needle nose pliers to tighten them - that was the hardest thing.
