Hurricane Boat Anchors
Many well known " anchors called " Hurricane" rely on needing to penetrate very very deeply to build up any type of resistance, or they will drag.
Even once set, a fluke or plow type anchor can break loose. The new revolutionary design of the Hurricane Boat Anchor makes it the first ever to utilize the Company patent pending "backplate" at the rear of the anchor.
This acts somewhat like a parachute to slow down the anchor. It is also similar to a bulldozer or snowplow. After moving about one foot, the buildup begins to increase. Each inch it moves will just build up a wall more and more until the anchor cannot move anymore.
This is a very effective way to hold your boat in up 30 mph winds or more, and maximize your boating time on the water.
The Recessed Center of the Hurricane Boat Anchor Easily Allows Compatibility & A Tight Fit With Top Mounted Anchor Bow Rollers.
Early prototype testing on the beach in a controlled environment using a digital strain gauge to measure the resistance.
For boats approximately from 20 to 25 feet in length using a single or plow point anchor, it is recommended to use a length of chain equivalent to or larger than the length of the boat to help the anchor set and maintain a constant horizontal pull. Being used the Hurricane only requires a 4’ section of chain per 100 feet of anchor line. Initially, The anchor may move 2 feet in a very mud soft sea bottom but by that point the buildup of matter on the Galvanized Steel unit will increase exponentially.
Setting It Up
To set up these systems, only the simplest of gear is required: a few odd blocks, preferably with rope tails attached, so that they may be fixed anywhere.
Hurricane Anchor - Using the tripline hole
If using the anchor in an area where it is likely to get stuck in rocks or on other debris, you can use the "tripline" hole for easy retrieval. Its Pretty amazing boat anchor to push the unit in the sand.
Instead of attaching the shackle to the rear slotted hole, attach it to the forward round hole. Then take the chain and re-route it back towards the slotted hole, and use one or two plastic zip ties to secure the chain to the slotted hole.
Try different size & thickness zip ties to find the one with the appropriate amout of breaking strength for your exact needs. Keep in mind: If using this method, the chain must be re-routed and secured to the slotted hole or the anchor simply will not function when only attached to the forward round hole.
When retrieving the boat anchor, draw in the anchor line as usual to move the boat towards the anchor.
If it feels stuck, give the line a few solid jerks upward to break the zip ties. Or tie the rope to a cleat, and carefully drive forward to help break the ties. It will now slide out backwards by reversing the angle of pull. Be sure to replace the re-secure the chain and broken zip ties.
The fold down design of the Hurricane anchor rollbar is perfect to fit in tight spaces.
