Guardian G5 Anchor - 2.5 lbs. - For Boats 12'-16'

The Fortress Guardian G5 Anchor is an easy-to-handle alternative to heavy steel anchors. Features lightweight, corrosion-resistant, aluminum-magnesium construction and a precise 32° fluke angle. Components are not anodized and are slightly smaller than the Fortress, but just like the Fortress, the weldless design maximizes strength and they easily disassemble for compact storage or parts replacement. Made in USA.

Anchor size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. Remember that the loads in 42 knots of wind are twice as much as in 30 knots. Use three-strand nylon rope, 6-12 ft (2-4 m) of chain and a minimum of 5:1 scope. Also, a minimum of 6 ft (2 m) of chain should be used for every 25 ft (8 m) of water depth. For storm conditions use an anchor one or two sizes larger.

Features of the Guardian G5 Anchor

  • Thanks to years of Fortress Anchor R&D, the Fortress's Guardian Anchor offers excellent quality, performance and at an attractive price 
  • The Guardian G5 is made from the same high tensile, corrosion resistant aluminum magnesium alloy and manufacturing precision as the Fortress line
  • Slightly smaller extrusion profiles and the elimination of some of Fortress' extra features such as anodizing, adjustable fluke angles, and several machining steps has resulted in an an excellent and affordable alternative to heavy, rust-prone steel anchors
