Galvanized River Rocker Break Away Anchor
Our anchors are made in the US from galvanized solid steel in the most popular sizes.
Our 25 lb anchor, which will work on most boats up to 4,000 lbs. Add 6 ft of our 5/16" chain to get an extra 5+ pounds to help in stronger currents and help the anchor lay down, bringing it up to 31 pounds. Approximate size: 18" wide by 18" deep by 21" high and made up of 1 1/2" round bar and 3/8" thick tines.
Multi-position link at the base to help the anchor fit snug in your anchor nest.
Our 15 lb anchor is perfect for smaller boats, up to 16 ft, made of the same quality as our 25 lb anchor, just smaller for those who don't need all that weight to hold their boat. Again, if you need a little extra weight, add 6 ft of our 5/16" chain to get an extra 5+ pounds to help in stronger currents and help the anchor lay down, bringing it up to 21 pounds. Approximate size: 12" wide by 11" deep by 14" high

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Would a Galvanized River Rocker be a good choice for a rocky shallow section of the Delaware River? I going to use a bow mounted anchor caddy
Our Rocker Anchor is a good general anchor for both soft and harder bottoms. The narrow tines allows the anchor to dig in better in a cobble stone mixed bottom and the weight allows it to hold better in softer sandy bottoms.
We cannot guarantee that our anchor will hold in all conditions, as no anchor manufacturer can, but between the weight of the anchor and the narrow pointed tines, you should be good to go.
One thing that I have to do when our rivers are running fast and high in the spring run-off in my normal holes, is add 6' of additional chain to add a little weight and help it lay down.
I know that this is not a diffinitive yes or no answer, but this should help.
What weight anchor would work best for me? We have a 16ft Alumaweld and mostly go out on the Sacramento River but plan to take it other places as well. I was interested in the 15lb but wasn't sure if it would hold up. Thanks!
The 15lb anchor could be a good choice, but the 25lb anchor would work better. A good rule of thumb is to use just enough anchor to get the job done for handling purposes. For example, a 100lb anchor would work, but who wants to wrestle with that much weight?
It would be impossible for me to tell you which river anchor would be best due to the varying conditions like current, bottom conditions, wind, etc., but like I said, use just enough anchor to get the job done and I think that the 15lb could do that. If you opted for the 15lb, I would add an additional 6' of chain to the end of it, just to make sure.
Hope this helps and don't hesitate to contact directly if you have any more questions.
