The Different Types of Anchor Bolts
When you are setting up any kind of boat, the first step is to install basic anchor bolts, circular bolt anchoring and fixed pole anchors for boat use. These basic bolt anchoring systems are used to attach the main support beam of a boat to the keel or hull of the boat. The use of boat anchors will help keep the boat in place when it is not being used or while it is on a foundation. A well-designed and properly installed anchor system can give boat owners many years of reliable service and keep them out on the water knowing where they are and how to get to where they need to go.
Bent angle anchor bolts offer numerous advantages depending on the specific material chosen. Additional advantages associated with bent angle anchor bolts include: Bent angle anchor bolts are lighter than straight bolt anchor bolts. These lightweight materials also make them easier to install than straight steel anchor bolts. Many more boat owners opt to use these types of bolts as opposed to standard steel or aluminum bolts because they offer a safer, longer-lasting option with a proven track record of performance. Lightweight carbon steel is often used because it is corrosion resistant, which also extends its useful life span.
Other specialty materials include stainless steel and alloy alloys. While stainless steel offers a higher degree of strength than most alloys, some stainless steels are more susceptible to corrosion. For this reason, most commercial marine boating lines and fittings are made from stainless steel with a mixed combination of alloys for extra strength, conductivity and corrosion resistance. Aluminum alloys are often mixed with stainless steel to produce a combination that is corrosion resistant. Other alloys commonly used for boat mounting structures include brass and copper. Copper is commonly used in the construction of both the keel and main sail of a boat.
