Yes, you can scale it up or down easily for different applications.


The good thing in this is that everyone can make it anchor how big they want.
I am planing to make one 25kg anchor for my boat and one 150kg heavy anchor and use it instead of 2.000kg heavy concrete block on fixed location in bay in front of my apartament.
The cost for 25kg galvanized anchor (cutting+welding+galvanizing) will be around 100$
The cost for 150kg galvanized anchor will be around 450$.

I think that you need for your boat 30kg heavy anchor.
Looking that is price the same if you make at home 25kg or 30kg or 40kg anchor ( I am pretty shue that you have electric winch ) I think that is allways better to have bigger anchor. With bigger anchor sleeping at night is better without stress.

When I am on holidays on Croatian islands I am always sleeping on anchor.

we can try to create the flute from multiple pieces welded or fastened to each other.

I would like to make a great anchor with cheap production cost and share it worldwide, to help people.

We have a lot of beautiful safe (no wind) bays to sleep, so we do not use port when we go on holidays. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdy4PF9zPO8

Videos, 2/10, making your own anchor with CAD and a laser/water cutting house, 10/10 :-)

Always hold the phone sideways! :-D Vertical videos aren't cool.

Also make sure it's clear which anchor is which. In some videos it's MB vs lots of slots and to me I don't know which is which.

I've got other stuff going on in my life right now, but I'm super keen to throw some cash at making some of these in various sizes.

Right now we're being bullied by an engineer who thinks they know better about mooring design. 3000nzd they want to "fix" our mooring made of 70mm chain (cross section of link steel, not link length) and massive steel donuts that couldn't rust away if given 100 years. It's a farce. The boat may end up on a BIG storm or two pretty soon at this rate. Fuck 'em.
