Scanmar Announces the Launch of its Redesigned AnchorRescue® System, “AnchorRescue II”, which Allows Boaters to utilize the Same Anchor Recovery device for different sized Anchor Chains. Device receives Patent Pending Status.

 

San Leandro, CA — September 16, 2019

 

Scanmar International, Inc. has announced the delivery of its redesigned AnchorRescue II anchor recovery system, which allows sail boaters and power boaters to recover their anchors that may have become tangled in the seabed. A revolutionary design breakthrough allows one AnchorRescue II device to be used on any size anchor chain ranging from 1/4” to 3/8”. Now, one AnchorRescue II system can be switched from one anchor to another, or even moved from boat to boat.

 

“The original AnchorRescue models were designed to fit a specific chain size. Our new kits are based on a design which accommodates the most commonly used chain sizes. Separate devices are available for larger chain sizes”, said Mike Scheck, CEO of Scanmar International. “This improves on a proven product, five years after the original design was delivered.”

 

The AnchorRescue II has received patent pending status from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, validating its unique ability to retrieve a boat’s ground tackle.

 

“This device provides an added layer of safety to boaters by saving the boat’s primary (and usually largest) anchoring system, eliminating the need to utilize the vessel’s secondary, often lighter backup ground tackle”, said Scheck. He also emphasized the value of being able to retrieve a fouled anchor. “Anyone who’s had to try to replace a large ground tackle system in a remote location knows it can be incredibly expensive if not impossible to do”.

 

Each AnchorRescue II anchor recovery system is designed, assembled and tested in the U.S. in Scanmar’s San Leandro, CA plant. The new system is constructed primarily of stainless steel.  

 

AnchorRescue II systems are available now. The product will be demonstrated at upcoming boat shows, including Southampton, Annapolis, and METS. Dealer inquires welcome.
