Heard a couple people say the teeth may not be long enough if it's sand. If it's 4-5 feet of water, sand bottom, and a 1-2 foot wave, is the small box anchor holding a x14v? Based on experience? Don't want to beat a deadhorse but will be purchasing an anchor this week so looking for any experiences.

sorry to bring this one back up but like a idiot i lost my small box anchor last weekend over the holiday. i have a 07 x2 and curious if a extra small box anchor will work with my boat. i never had a problem with the small but the size was a pain for storage.

The lakes that I roll are either sand or silt. Now when I say silt I mean 2 to 3 feet of silt. I put my dive gear on one day and went to the bottom and it's so soft you can put your arm in to your elbow before you realize you are on the bottom. I have an anchor that sets fine in sand but will never work in the silt. I'm betting if I bought the box anchor it would disappoint me.

Another vote for the box anchor. Works great out west in the nor cal lakes and in the delta.

Chene Anchor

I bought a chene anchor, it was only $40 new. And it does not need a chain. Easy to store without potentially scratching up the boat..
