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.

Wow - thanks - awesome customer backup

I'm beginning to see why the anchors are very sought after

I'll get hold of you if I do buy it - many thanks

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
