Fortress Marine Anchors have developed a reputation for being among some of the strongest holding lightweight anchors and Capt. Dave Carraro put the company’s FX-37 to the test during a season of fishing on the National Geographic Channel’s TV series Wicked Tuna on his 44’ Calvin Beal, F/V Tuna.com.

“I can’t compare Fortress to any other anchor after 40 years of fishing,” said Carraro in a statement. “It’s lightweight, holds like a mooring and durable.”

The FX-37 weighs 21 pounds and is engineered for boats from 46 feet to 51 feet long. It’s adjustable to 32 degrees or 45 degrees to optimize the shank angle and the flukes are sharpened to work in a variety of seabeds. It’s rustproof and non-magnetic and is machined from marine-grade aluminum-magnesium alloy. It can be disassembled and has no welds that can fail. It has a retail price of about $499.
