The type of anchor you choose is often dependant on the nature of the seabed you are anchoring to. Anchors are designed to anchor a boat to the seabed allowing for a boat to be held in position against wind, tide and current. The use of anchors is an ancient art as old as boating itself. Learning to anchor your boat effectively is an important skill to ensure safe and enjoyable boating. Reef Anchor are another popular anchor which is very effective on rock, wrecks and coral. Reef anchors rely on 'hooking' onto underwater structures rather than penetrating the bottom. The great feature of the reef anchor is that it has bendable prongs which can be straightened when lifting the anchor. Once on board the prongs can be bent back to the optimal shape. Reef anchors are available with four and five prongs. When you purchase a reef anchor at BCF the prongs are in the straightened position which is easier and safer to transport. Due to the prongs' ability to be straightened it is not recommended to use a reef anchor overnight, especially in a high risk situation.
