The Manson Sand Anchor

Originally designed by Bill Danforth in California in 1939 the Danforth style anchor has offered a good hold with an easy set. The Manson Sand is traditionally used in smaller craft anchoring. Suitable as a short term fishing anchor or for day cruising. Very simple to use and easy to stow, the Manson Sand is also very useful as a stern anchor or "daypick".

The Manson Sand offers a quick set in most seabed types and offers good penetration in weed conditions. The galvanised Sand is also available in 316L Stainless Steel execution.
