I've heard about using a chainsaw winch to pull your boat off the sandbar when stuck. I was looking for information on this set up. Does anybody have any suggestions to brand, availability in Fairbanks, size, cost? How big of one do I need to pull my XS off the beach?
In addition, what is the most popular type of anchor for river use. I used a big bruce anchor for my AK Searunner, but that wouldn't work too good in the river I think. Thanks, John
