Product Description
slide_anchor The unique offshore box anchor holds your boat at a 45° angle from the bottom, digging in the downward facing flukes without snagging them on debris. Easy to handle, this anchor gives you more control over the placement of your boat, regardless of water conditions. Toss the anchor overboard, and it will set within one foot of its landing. To retrieve, pull the line to bring the boat over the anchor. The lack of upward facing surface area allows the anchor to pop off the bottom. Stainless steel stabilizing arm folds compactly into the included ventilated storage bag.

    I'm new at boating, I have a Glastron 235GX and I had a hard time anchoring with a regular fluke anchor, very frustrating for me not being able to anchor even with lots of rope, for sure it had to do with my inexperience. I ordered this small box anchor, the design made sense to me, found a cove at the lake 10ft deep and 10mph wind, dropped the anchor as indicated, gave it 3x the depth (30ft of rope) and bam!, the anchor hooked to the bottom immediately, like a magnet, we swam for over an hour and the boat didn't move at all. We pulled the boat towards the anchor to remove it and we were almost on top of it when it let go from the bottom, the slight extra weight by comparison helps the box grip firmly. I was really impressed, great investment indeeed, highly recommended.

    heavy and did not hold in wind

    This anchor was recommended by many and had good reviews. In the lakes east of Pheonix, the anchor has had problems holding a 21ft wake boarding boat in windy conditions.

    This anchor was recommended by many and had good reviews. In the lakes east of Pheonix, the anchor has had problems holding a 21ft wake boarding boat in windy conditions.

    It's a pain to collapse and expand with the spring arm.

    I did not really see a benefit over a traditional anchor that cost 1/2 of this anchor.

      Comments about Slide Anchor Small Box Anchor:

      I have been boating for over 20 years and I have used almost every style anchor. This box anchor is the best I have used for ease of use and holding power. Last weekend I set the anchor and for 5 hours in heavy winds I sat and watched almost every other boat have to adjust and readjust their anchors. I was there for 6 hours and never had to even think about my anchor

        Couldn't believe how easy it was to set the anchor. It was working on sandy rock bottoms and never failed. Very easy to store in the boat taking up little space. Come with a nice durable case to keep from scratching the boat. Awesome tool

            Great anchor. I have a 22' deck boat, almost 4k lbs. and this anchor held my boat all day long with 11 people on board. The boat was getting hit with 2ft rollers and winds of 20mph+ all day and the boat didnt move. The bottom is a mix of sand, mud and vegitation and the anchor released with ease. The one thing that I didnt like was it takes a good amount of force to pull up the release to fold the anchor up. But will take that as a trade off for the great performance.

            Highly recommend!!

              DOES THIS ITEM INCLUDE THE VENTILATED STORAGE BAG AS STATED IN YOUR CATALOG FOR THIS ITEM? THE WEB INFO FOR THIS ITEM DOES NOT MENTION IT.

              IF YES, THEN IS THERE A CHOICE OF COLORS FOR THE BAG?
