Allows you to anchor near the beach, row or motor to shore and then let the Anchor Buddy pull the boat back into deeper, safer water – protecting it from damage due to rocky shores or wave action on beaches.
Stretches as you go to shore; retracts as you pay out your retrieval line.
• Works with ski boats, fishing boats, sail boats, patio boats, rafts and jet skis up to 22 ft/4,000 lb
• Enables you to anchor on a short scope; the shock is taken out of your anchor line and the anchor will not pull loose in waves and swells as with a regular line
• Designed for day-use only; not for permanent mooring
• Do not leave boat unattended when using this product
This product is a section of loosely woven hollow braid polypropylene covering a bungee cord. The polypro has a spliced shackle at one end and a spliced snap hook at the other. Attach one end to the anchor chain and the other end to the boat. Anchor about 30 ft off the shore.
Row or motor to shore, stretching the bungee cord.
Attach a separate retrieval line to the boat and disembark, allowing the Anchor Buddy to pull the boat back out into deeper water as the bungee cord shortens.
The loose weave of the polypropylene cover loosens and expands when the Anchor Buddy is short, but tightens and narrows as it is stretched (similar to the "Chinese Finger Cuffs" you played with as a kid). The internal bungee cord provides stretch, while the polypro cover provides strength and ultimately limits how far the bungee can stretch. At ultimate stretch, most of the load is on the polypropylene cover.
