Are they galvanised steel ?
Yes our anchors are galvanised steel underneath the rubber coating.
Does the vinyl wear out ?
Over time wear and tear on the protective vinyl coat will wear down and can have little splits from rocks and ect, though your anchor will always be protected and it takes years for all the vinyl to wear away.
Do they anchors hold well in rough conditions ?
This all comes down to size of vessel, depth of water, currents and wind speed but yes our anchors are based of the 1940s Danforth design how ever we put anchoring into 3 categories:
1. Day anchoring will not require as much chain and rope as for what you would rely on whilst away or asleep on a vessel.
2. Night anchoring you want to make sure you have a sufficient amount of chain which could be double your vessel and rope 5 times the depth you are, many reasons why, some are being current strengths can change during change of tide, winds can increase during the night, swell can also increase at place.
3. Storm anchoring which many of you may not do but if your doing this you probably already know what you are doing. Increase chain length but a shit tonne and same goes with your rope.

To secure your seats down in worse case scenario. If you roll or flip you ski form tow surfing or wave jumping you run the risk of creating air pressure at the rear of your ski which happens often will un click your seat. If your seats come off you can pretty much say good bye to your ski.
