Fluke vs. Plow (Scoop) Anchor—What’s the Difference?

The two most popular types of anchors are the fluke and plow. Each has its own advantages. Fluke anchors, also known as "Danforth" or "Lightweight" anchors, are the most popular type. They are very user friendly due to their light weight, yet they have an impressive holding power-to-weight ratio, so a light fluke anchor can hold a fairly large vessel. Fluke anchors are best for sandy and muddy bottoms.

Plow anchors are more versatile than fluke anchors in that they are highly effective in muddy, grassy, and sandy bottoms. If you tend to anchor on varying floor conditions, the plow design may be your best option.

Pro Tip: Use Both a Fluke and a Plow Anchor

To maximize your anchoring security, most boating experts suggest using two anchors of different designs. Having both a fluke and plow anchor onboard will give you peace of mind knowing you can anchor in a variety of floor conditions, and two anchors will invariably increase your overall holding power.
