Fortress FX-55 with chain/nylon rode

Finally decided that hauling around five anchors was probably too much...

This anchor is a Fortress FX-55 attached with a Lewmar SS swivel to an approximately 350' anchor rode comprised of 300' of 5/8" 8-plait nylon rode and 50' 3/8" HT chain.... dimensions maybe off slightly and, I think, chain/rode may actually be longer.

Anchor/rode has never been in the water.

Defender offers a similar package for $1,200. I'll sell the complete package for $600.

I'm in Baltimore until the end of May and then will be headed north to Montreal. We might be able to meet up along the way to save shipping it. Otherwise, I'll pack and ship it for my costs, subject to your approval.

If you're interested, I'll send pics. Send a PM and I'll respond.

I sold the FX55, but I do still have the 65 lb. HydroBubble and chain/rode, which is a terrific anchor and is suitable for a 50-60 ft powerboat.
