We recommend that you permanently install the Mud Palms, as they lift the back end of the anchor up so that the flukes will take a more aggressive angle into the sea bottom and the anchor will set faster.
If the anchor doesn't have the Mud Palms, then I will send you a set for free, just pay shipping & handling.
