Chad Ferguson of the very informative website http://www.catfishedge.com/ has created a great shallow water boat anchor using Max-Gain Systems fiberglass. He has created a complete Do-It-Yourself (DIY) guide on his website: http://www.catfishedge.com/shallow-water-anchor/ where he goes into great detail about his search to make a durable, strong, and inexpensive shallow water anchor. Chad has also produced a video (see below) in which he uses his new shallow water anchor and explains the process in detail. His design can be utilized using any size of fiberglass rod allowing users the ability to anchor larger (or smaller) boats.
Max-Gain Systems shallow water anchor kits are the most capable anchors that you can get for your boat. Fiberglass is saltwater corrosion proof, keeps you steady in the water with wind, waves, and current, and gives you, by far, the lightest and most cost efficient way to anchor your boat. Our anchor systems are fully customizable and expandable with additional extension kits and 4-in-1 paddle kits. We are currently working on even more accessories for this EXTREMELY capable system. Visit us often for further additions to the accessories.
