    And turn claw for 180 degree and weld it again. The anchor will dig much better.

    You're a master at sharing and giving guidance Bonaparte, thanks for all the info you've put up here !

    The V form tip you've posted looks like it's made of two parts. But why would the anchor dig better when the top side of the tip is even with the fluke ?

    It looks to me like when the fluke top surface is lower than the top side of the thicker tip, then the fluke will have less resistance when the anchor is digging in . . ?

    Is that last ‘‘lower ear’’ addition meant to put a brake on it, so the anchor won't dig in too far ?

    I am sorry I do not speak english very well. English is not my first language.
    I was born in Serbia, then We move to Italy, then we move to Slovenia. So, english is my fourth language.

    Your English looks very well to me, and when there are doubts what is meant questions can be asked, so no problem at all there . . :)

    P.S. - E.g. like Otaly is meant to be Italy ? - Which looks like just a typo, as I too have the "O" and the "I" besides each other on the keyboard.

    (the "e.g." abbreviation in English is from Latin "exempli gratia" and means "for example" or longer "for the sake of an example")
