Anchor quick release

3 posts in this topic

After doing a lot of reading and watching how to videos I made my anchor system that can be disengaged in a second and is recoverable.

Here is my version.

I used boat fender about $7, rope, couple of snap links, a bruce anchor, 1 1/2 half inch foam pipe insulation wrapped with 100mph tape for durability and epoxy. I cut and epoxied the pipe insulation to the ends of the fender so the rope would not slide off.

Shows how the anchor would look deployed. Slide the 550 cord through the blue snap link and tie it off with a slip knot, deploy the anchor and once it grabs I just wrap it around the green snap link 3-4 times to keep it from taking more line. Then move my anchor trolley to the front or rear. If I need to disengage just pull the slip knot and I'm free in about .3 seconds and the anchor line will float in place for retrieval.
