Ok...

Now that we see so simple a child can do it....

How about a cave man or would you have to pay royalties?

Out of deep respect and appreciation, I am resisting the urge to post images of owners who might well fit that description.

BTW - When boaters send in a warranty registration card after making a purchase, we send them a welcome letter with an offer of two Fortress caps if they send us an image of themselves aboard their boat holding up their new anchor.

I think there is gold in those photos.

I'll trade ... a 10kg fortress for my best caveman outfit pic holding my new anchor.

An enticing offer, but I would not want to risk ticking off a caveman, as Geico has:

The Chesapeake Bay test boat, the 81-ft. R/V Rachel Carson, has two original Bruce anchors aboard, and one is visible on the bow in the image below.

At the Captain's request we gave them a 32 lb (14.5 kg) FX-55 after the testing. During preliminary tests. This anchor had held to over 4,000 lbs during several pulls, tripping the aft winch in the process, and so they now have a very formidable back up anchor.
