Description of the JAMBO®-Anchor in english
- The flukes(1) are well separated which prevents the JAMBO®-Anchor from falling over. The complete weight of the anchor passes directly onto the spiked tips acting in a similar manner to the cast iron anchors of larger ships.
- On the outer edges of the flukes strong spikes are formed from steel rods (2). These spikes (2) dig firmly into hard packed sand and seagrass providing grip for the anchor, similar to the spikes seen on a Fishermans stock anchor..
- Through the shape of the flukes (1) the JAMBO®-Anchors hold improves progressively as the anchor digs into the seabed. This feature provides optimum hold on soft ground such as sand and weed.
- The centre piece (3) of the JAMBO®-Anchor provides the large tilt angle that enables the spikes (4) and the flukes (2) to drive directly into the seabed. Thus the JAMBO®-Anchor only needs a short pull to drive the anchor in.
