Bruce Style Anchors

Showing 1 of 1 results
The Bruce anchor was developed in the 70's by the Bruce Anchor Group as an alternative to what was, at the time, the only general puporse anchor available, the CQR/Plow style anchor. Since then, the Bruce Anchor Group has stopped offering anchors to the general public.
 
The main selling point of the Bruce Anchor is that it is an excellent all round anchor. It will hold well in most bottoms, although it performs less well in sand and mud. It is also easy to set and to retrieve and has a reputation for not breaking out during wind/tide changes. On the downside, its awkward one piece design can make it difficult to stow. It also has a low holding power to weight ratio, meaning you'll likely require a heavier Claw anchor than you would require for other styles of anchor.
