Default Shallow Water Anchors

I remember a post on "that other site" talking about shallow water anchors like the Wang, Stick It, Cajun Anchor, etc. Well last time I was at Big Lake, I bounced my Wang Anchor out of the boat in some rough water. It was a sweet stick, but it costs about $100 shipped to replace the anchor. Of course the bracket is still on my transom.

Well, since I've been stuck over here in Texas, I did some research on solid fiberglass (which is a much better option than PVC and not nearly as loud or heavy as stainless steel). I thought y'all might be interested in my replacement.

8 foot solid fiberglass rod from http://www.mgs4u.com/ultralight-PPC.htm for less than $20.

Epoxied a PVC T-piece to the end and put a loop of nylon rope on the end. That way you have the option of tying off to it, or putting it through a bracket.

Finally, the busniess end is easily grinded to a point with a belt sander.

Watch that fiberglass...it will get splinters over time. Especially in oysters!

Default Maybe....

But it is exactly the same stick used in the Wang Anchor and others. I figure at $18 bucks + change, I'll chunk it and build them as needed. It feels strange saying it, but I loved my Wang.

Thats much cheaper than stainless, unless you get one for free like I did. Does it sink as good as a stainless one.
