Overview
The Slip-Ring Anchor is a traditional fluke anchor design, with the addition of a sliding ring on the shaft for easy retrieval. Unlike most anchors, which must be weighed by pulling up on the shank - a difficult task if the anchor is snagged on something - a slip ring anchor is retrieved by backing your boat directly over anchor, which allows the ring to slide to the crown and release the anchor from the opposite direction.

• Anchor chain should always be used with lightweight fluke anchors, to provide extra weight necessary to maintain the proper pull angle for setting
• While some manufacturers recommend less, a good starting point is a length of chain equal to the boat's length
• Fluke anchors require a scope of at least 5:1 (rode length to water depth) in order to set properly. 7:1 scope is recommended
