Why Helix?


Helix mooring anchors are far superior to all other mooring anchors on the market. BoatUS Insurance and Cruising World Magazine have conducted pull tests to compare the holding power of the typical anchors used to moor boats. Their findings have proven that helix anchors have 4 to 5 time the holding power compared to all the alternatives. A single helix anchor, properly installed, can withstand the pulling force of a 800 hp Tug boat. Many different test pulls, with strain gauges in the line have registered in excess of 20,000 lbs of holding.
