Designed for lighter weight hand or windlass deployment , the Standard Design HydroBubble® features a stainless plow and an aluminum shank. The Standard model’s shank is made from high tensile heat-treated aluminum. For this application the material is virtually unbreakable, and is powder paint coated to retard corrosion.
The plow is the part that does the anchoring work, and as the name suggests, plows itself into the seabed. The HydroBubble® anchor plow design yields superior holding capacity over other comparably sized anchors. The design causes the anchor to dig into the seabed and set deeply. The HydroBubble® is NOT simply a ‘surface’ anchor.
