Suitable for boats up to 5M
The holding power of any anchor is directly related to how deeply it sets and holds the sea bed. Most anchors on the market today are restricted by design to ploughing along near the sea bed surface and rarely, if ever, disappear entirely below the sea bed. Cooper Anchors are a very simple design with its weighted tip and straight streamline shank, which is designed to completely disappear below the sea bed and stay there even through wind and tide changes. The small area between the shank and the tip allows the anchor to change direction with less effort, especially during anchor retrieval. As the boat is pulled forward, over and above the anchor, the anchor rotates with the vertical pull and is easily retrieved.
The small blade on the shank of the anchor completely eliminates the possibility of the anchor staying on its back by creating a new balance point that rolls the anchor onto its tip and sets immediately. The small blade also increases holding power and stabilises the angle of attack as the anchor buries because the small blade and the main blade are at the same angle and support each other. All of these features ensure the anchor sets deeply and provides the maximum holding power for your safety and pleasure.
Protecting our reefs
Shackle or tie your rope or chain through hole B and use a cable tie through the main hole A
If the anchor becomes stuck, as you pull up, the cable tie will break, and the anchor will release backwards without damaging the reef or the anchor.
This method should only be used in a reef
*Hint; When using a cable tie, put it through the anchor twice before going around the rope or chain, so you don't leave it behind when it breaks.
We recommend 6-8mm or 1/4-5/16" Rope/Chain and a three to one scope (with chain length equal to boat length) - i.e. anchoring in 15m water requires 45m rope/chain.
Anchor Length - 405mm
Anchor Width - 175mm
**All size and scope recommendations are as a guide only for relatively calm water and in good anchoring conditions. Where conditions are not favourable, rough seas, fast currents or strong winds, more scope, or a larger anchor should be considered.
