    Wow, thanks Steve !! I just ordered a heavy-duty stainless swivel for my anchor, some shackles and misc. shiny stuff that will come in handy next season. The 20% off coupon code expires today (Friday 9/28) but it looks like even their regular prices are very reasonable. And finding free shipping to Alaska for heavy parts is always a plus. I appreciate the lead to these guys.

    Just ordered one of this; Stainless Steel Hinged Plow Anchor 26.5 lbs


    It should come in handy when I need some type of anchoring on sand bars; Might be good to use as a pulling point when using a winch. Thanks for the link.

    You need to attach/shackle you chain to the eye on the back of the anchor then run the chain up the stock to the eye and attach it there with a few loops/hitches of 550 twine or some guys use a heavy duty zip tie or two, that way if you hang up the anchor the twine breaks and in theory you will be able to pull on the back of the anchor and get it out of the hang.anchor bolt.jpg
    If you do a search on here you should be able to find info on rigging anchors. A tripline is a seperate line and float/buoy that run's from the back of the anchor so if you hang the anchor you can pull from that line to free the anchor.

    Potbuilder's idea is a good one, and a setup that many people use. Just be aware of what you are getting into if you set your anchor up like this. He is right, if it hangs on a rock, you will more likely be able to get over top of it and still retrieve it. Where this is less of a desirable setup is if the winds are up at night, you are anchored up, and the wind changes and your anchor needs to spin and reset. In this second case, you are trusting those tie wraps to keep you off of the rocks. Someone said it well on here once when they said that if they have to choose between losing their boat on the rocks in a storm vs. losing an anchor sometime, they will chose giving up the anchor. As I said, either method of rigging the anchor is a reasonable decision; I just wanted to point out the pros and cons of this decision.

    I like the added information, adding the pros and cons is also helpful, thx

    I figured most folks will realize that for overnight the tripper is not that good a idea. You could always just leave a shackle on the stock end of the anchor and just attach it to the chain for overnights. The other thing is that i bet a lot of times its the chain that gets hung down and not the anchor so no matter what you do its still stuck ????
