Anchor Suggestions

Thinking about buying a box anchor for the new boat. If I go this route, should I use an Anchor Buddy, or go directly anchor to chain to rope? Thanks!

The box anchor is a great choice and you don't need a chain. I use their Danik hooks and they work very well. The Anchor Buddy is also very useful when you don't want to beach it.

Good to know! And the Danik hook looks great. I still have my anchor rope on the spool so those will work great and eliminate trying to tie weird knots in shallow water and most of the anchor rope is still on the spool.

You will only need the Small box anchor.

I use Anchor buddy even in deep as the combination of the two keeps the boat from "walking".

Nothing compares to the box anchor. Best way to go, IMO.

I use a box anchor and a anchor buddy.

Box anchor on the rear with a anchor buddy and on the front a shore spike and danik hook.

If you are on a lake, you can just pull the boat in to the shore or dock and then have the anchor buddy pull it back out.

If you are on a high current river you can use the box anchor on a hard line and it will hold in almost any conditions.
