WHAT YOU GET

The retriever is made from UV resistant UHMW with stainless steel fittings and is supplied with a bridle for attaching your retriever line.

The slider and tether are 316 stainless steel. Tether chain is supplied in excess of the length normally required and is cut to length after installation. A shackle is provided to facilitate attaching the tether to the trip point of the anchor. Ample cable ties are provided.

ANCHOR COMPATIBILITY

AnchorRescue works well with the following anchor types:

• Claw – Bruce, etc.

• Hinged plow – CQR, etc.

• Fixed plow – Ultra, Delta, etc.

• Scoop – Rocna, Vulcan, Spade, Manson, Mantus etc.

AnchorRescue may work with pivoting fluke anchors like the Fortress and Danforth but requires modification to the tether arrangement and in some cases the anchor itself. It’s use with these anchors is less than optimal and is not recommended.

SIZING

The AnchorRescue you need is determined by the size of the chain used at the anchor.

• AR100 – for 1/4 to 5/16 inch (6-8 mm) anchor chain supplied with 34 inch tether chain.

• AR200 – for 3/8 inch (10 mm) anchor chain supplied with 44 inch tether chain.

• AR300 – for 1/2 inch (12-13 mm) anchor chain supplied with 54 inch tether chain.

NOTE: The AR300 slider is a close fit for 13 mm chain. Misshapen links may cause the slider to hang up.

The maximun load for AR100 and AR200 is 760lb.
The maximun load for AR300 is 940lb.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

It is rare, but there are circumstances where even AnchorRescue cannot free an anchor.

 

• If the retriever cannot reach the slider they don’t get a chance to hook up. This can happen if the rode is fouled or the anchor is buried deep in mud or a particularly heavy weed bed.
• If the anchor is so tightly wedged into an obstruction that the working load limit of the AnchorRescue would be exceeded in trying to free it.

 

For a rope/chain rode, a splice is required. The retriever is not designed to pass over the bulk of a thimble/shackle connection.

 

If your anchor does not have a hole designed for a trip line or a point of attachment suited to a trip line, you will have to add one before you can use the AnchorRescue anchor retrieval system.

 

Because we can’t know every anchor/chain combination, there may be some combinations out there that require a tether length longer than that provided. In that case, you can either extend the tether yourself or, for a nominal fee, we will exchange your slider/tether for one with an extra long tether.
