Anchor budy


Slow in it down

Recommended Posts

I saw a thread about a deal that you attached to your anchor line and it pulls the anchor when start moving the boat so you don't have to pull it your self. Has abyone seen this?

Thanks

I really don't think that ball deal is meant to be used with an anchor buddy. In fact, I noticed that the vid. didn't tell you that you need to run an independent anchor line alongside the anchor buddy line. You're supposed to connect both the anchor buddy line and an anchor line to the anchor then, make a knot or loop in the anchor line 50' up from the anchor.

The reason is, if you throw the anchor in deep water, when you go to pull it up, you're gonna be pulling on an elastic that will continue to stretch and stretch. The anchor line will take over after 50' of stretch and allow you to retrieve the anchor. Also, the independent anchor line is a good back up if the buddy were to break.
