Anchors

April, 4, 2006

Take a 4 foot piece of rebar and bend it in a V. The bottoms bend both to a 90 degree angle about 3 inches up. Cut in half 2 gallon milk jugs. Put your anchor chain over your rebar. Pour in milk jugs about 4 inches of concrete and then set in your rebar into both. You can position your milk jugs in a square or diamond pattern depending if you want the anchor to grab or dig. Cost is about 8 dollars depending on the chain mainly. Round Kitchen mixing bowls work good also for this….

Simple Boat saver… I tie a knot 10 feet from the anchor so I know how much rope I have left as not to beat up the sides of the boat. Most of the time, I am in a hurry to get the anchors up and on to the next hole. A lot of people will use anchor chains instead that serve various other purposes. The problem is that most of the chains are only 2 foot long. So a simple knot give you an indication of where your anchor is in the water not to tear up your boat.
