Popular with many yachtsmen around the world, the CQR plow has immense holding power in sand, pebble, rock, grass, kelp and coral. The shank hinge allows it to stay set during wind and tide shifts. The horn, H section of shank, and pin are one piece, high tensile, and drop forged solid steel. Shaped and balanced for highest efficiency, the CQR's holding power is especially suited to exposed anchorages. The harder the pull, the deeper it plows. Manufacturers lifetime limited warranty against breakage.
