Boat length /  Main anchor in 30 knots wind. (bottom scale).

Select the right "STEALTH" Anchor and needed hardware for your boat...

 

1.  Look for the length and weight of your boat. 
2.  The largest anchor calculated is the recommended anchor.  For a working anchor use one size smaller then the calculated main anchor. 
3.  Multi hull boats need larger anchors due to larger exposed area to the wind eye, larger wind resistance, therefore select one size larger anchor then recommended.  
4.  Ground Tackle Force Load (GTFL) Calculated Anchor Size:  For a more exact evaluation for your boats need, you can also provide us with your boat’s unique characteristics and we know exactly what size MAIN anchor you need. See GTFL information.

Tips how to us the anchor...

  For normal use:  Start with an minimum of 3:1 scope and as weather conditions worsen, pay out more scope. 
Over night mooring:  Moderate shelter, fair holding ground use adequate scope of minimum 5:1.
In a distress situation (shallow water):  Apply a bolt in the angle adjustment hole and pay out 10:1 scope or more
In deep water NO bolt needed!
