I would suspect that doesn't apply so much to the larger Fortress models. Given the FX-125 weighs about 70-lbs... I wouldn't expect it to sail too much...
I think I'd be inclined to investigate
whether a Fortress might be better than the existing Danforth... but actually changing might be dependent on whether a replacement Fortress would actually be larger than the existing Danforth. Or if the different fluke angles might be an advantage. If not, maybe no advantage to Fortress.
The optional 45° fluke angle on the Fortress might or might not be useful. Better than the Forfjord in mud? If so, maybe permanently set the Fortress to the 45° angle? Or perhaps the 32° angle might be better than the Forfjord in some other substrate? (I have no insight into the Forfjord's strengths or weaknesses...)
Otherwise, changing the Fortress angle on the fly doesn't look like it'd be very easy in that particular installation...
