 Where To Buy

In addition to the usual suspects (West Marine, Defender, Boater's World) there's pyacht, Hamilton Marine, Jamestown Distributors, Blue Ocean Tackle (if you're looking for anchors in the 100 to 100,000 lb. range) ebaycraigslist, oodle and kijiji.

If you're considering craigslist look at using crazedlist; with crazedlist (works only in Mozilla Firefox browser not Microsoft Internet Explorer) you can search simultaneously among different locales. Very useful to find that particular anchor in a specific weight you want. It's ridiculous that craigslist makes it a pain to search multiple cities. Don't they understand that many folks are looking for unique items and don't mind it if they'll have to travel out of their 'community' to get it?

As with the anchors noted on this website, I do not have any financial, personal or affiliate relationship any with retailers mentioned above.
