Details

The Fortress Marine Anchors are precision-machined from an aluminum alloy as strong as steel but only half the weight. Made to last years, the anchors are durable, rustproof and corrosion resistant. The sharper, dull-edge steel anchors will set faster and penetrate deeper into common sea bottoms for incredible holding power, and dramatically increase holding power in problem soft mud bottoms. 

 

Years of research and development, high-tech materials and manufacturing, and thousands of real world tests assure high performance, quality, and value. All Fortress Marine Anchors feature Mud Palms designed to help the anchor set faster in any type of sea bottom. The Mud Palms are a set of plates that bolt on the crown of the anchor. They create a lift to the crown of the anchor, causing the flukes to point more directly to the seabed and help set the anchor faster and more accurately. The Marine Anchors can be reassembled from the normal 32° angle to a 45° angle to increase holding power in soft mud bottoms.

 

Boat size recommendations are for boats of average windage and proportions in 30 knots of wind, average bottom conditions, and moderate protection from open seas. There are eight Fortress Anchors to choose from, ranging in sizes and capable of anchoring boats between 16 and 150 feet. Storage is easy as the anchors can be disassembled and placed in a stowaway bag for portability.

Buoy Data Powers Muskegon Lake Hypoxia Research

Sixty years ago, the famous ecologist George Evelyn Hutchinson wrote, “A skillful limnologist can possibly learn more about the nature of a lake from a series of oxygen determinations than from any other chemical data.†Since then, oxygen measurements have only grown more relevant as the problem of hypoxia expands in lakes, oceans and estuaries across the globe.   But ecologists’ ability to measure oxygen has grown too. When Hutchison wrote that in 1957,  the “series of oxygen determinations†produced by a data buoy like the one floating on Muskegon Lake in Michigan was unthinkable.

Long-Term Monitoring Aids Scientists Studying Sea Star Wasting Mystery

Scientists working to solve the mystery of Sea Star Wasting Disease—and to learn more about the possible keystone species Pisaster ochraceus , the ochre sea star—are reaping the benefits of long-term monitoring of the species along the West Coast. Dr. Melissa Miner , a UC Santa Cruz researcher in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, spoke with EM about her two decades of work with the Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network and her recent efforts surrounding the ochre sea star. Keeping an eye on intertidal species In 2013, people began to notice that sea stars all along the West Coast were in the grip of a strange disease. The stars exhibited lesions and quickly succumbed, deteriorating and wasting away.

Simple, Brilliant Water Quality Fixes From Environmental Engineering

If you're from a small town in the US, or even if you've ever taken a drive through rural America, you've almost certainly seen large water storage tanks gracing the skyline. Some have even become landmarks in their own right, with clever decorations that say something about the communities they stand in. In fact, even the largest city in the U.S., New York City, is full of 12,000 to 17,000 municipal water tanks on stilted legs, dotting the city's otherwise modern-looking profile. These water tanks are used by communities around the country, and they store up enough water for municipal drinking use, plus emergencies.
