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.

eDNA Tests Swimmability in 90 Minutes or Less

In most places around the country where freshwater lakes and beaches offer recreational opportunities, health officials monitor the water for elevated bacterial counts—usually about once a week in populated areas, less often in more remote locations. However, the current state-of-the-art testing leaves about 24 to 30 hours of lag time between when water is tested for bacteria and when results come back. During that time, if the water seems unsafe, officials usually limit access to it. This summer, researchers from Cornell University were testing a new approach using environmental DNA (eDNA) with the help of Biomeme Inc. , a biotechnology device company.

Shedd Aquarium Learning Programs Manager Sadie Norwick and Communications and Public Relations Coordinator Kayley Ciocci spoke to EM about the Shedd's innovative ROV programming for the public. Inspiring conservation with technology Although the pilot programs using the ROVs were new in 2018, the Shedd team is no stranger to using ROVs to educate the public.
