That's where I saw it, but now its need parts for his racecar. He also has mastered the application of 303 to preserve vinyl!

This looks more like how to buff out your gel coat as the sand will sand off the nicks from the rocks when in bobs up on shore!

In America, more over socal, we call that sano.

Maybe he's got a buddy at the local prop shop who keeps him in new underwater gear?
I can't imagine being that close to shore- I get nervous in anything less than 4 feet of water!

I get anxious at 3 feet. The pic above is way out of my comfort zone.

4ft doesn't scare me at our lake since its 4ft at the deepest. but on public lake with unknown obstacles, yeah not smart.

Deepest? Holy cow - I'd be freaking out the whole time. I'm much happier at 30-200 feet all the time.

Those are examples of good anchoring only if you don't give a hoot about your boat or there's absolutely no wind, waves or other actions that would cause the boat to move any closer to shore.
Even with those mentioned above I'm thinking the running gear is grinding into the bottom if anyone moves in the boat. Anchoring like that on my lake any weekend or on Lake Erie any day of the week would guarantee a trip to the gel coat shop and probably your mechanic to replace the strut.

The only thing he's mastered is "How to be an Idiot". :uglyhamme

Here is another way of doing it. Fill your boat with water and no anchor is necessary...

This past summer in Tahoe couldn't decide if we should just walk the boat out from the marina in all of 3-4 ft at the Keys.

I'm curious to know what the story was here- didn't set the anchor correctly? Did the anchor line part? Failed fuel pump or something?
Any links to the event?

Shallower the lake, smaller the wake. I remember the first time I really took the 96' PS190 from the private lake to lake mead and thinking "What the heck?"

My lake is deepest at about 12ft. Average is about 8. Puts me on edge driving around. Was used to a lake that had 14ft and was comfortable on that. Nothing in the 20 to 50 ft deep range we can boat on easily around these parts

Twelve feet is safe enough for me. If this is the lake that you live on or use exclusively there shouldn't be any problem at all. You'll know what areas to stay away from. Good luck.:):)

My lake is 7-10' deep with a couple 30' holes. you can really tell when you hit the deep spots. especially when surfing

We are about 6' at the end where the slalom course is and 12-35 on the larger portion. 4' wouldn't bother me if I were sure it was consistent.

We are on a chain of lakes....nothing more that a flowage. Water is anywhere from 4ft at the end of my pier to the deepest hole of 57ft. Safe as it gets, but if you visit, get a map of the chain. All danger areas are marked with boys. :)

I thought the proper way was to sink a Malibu and tie off to it
