Manual Anchor Crank? I think....

8 posts in this topic

I have seen these on a few boats. The crank that it mounted in the back of the boat, that raises and lowers the anchor that is on the front of the boat. So you don't have to get up and pull the anchor up or put it down. Does anyone know what I am talking about, or where I can get this device?

The "device" your talking about is known as an anchormate.

I had one, and didn't really care for it. Too slow, hard to crank up, but a good place to store the rope. Now I just use one of those cheapie pulley deals that I can still work from the back, only drawback is the rope has to lay on the floor. Nice thing about it, it's a lot faster, easier to let out extra rope, and if someone else is with me, they can run it from the front of the boat also.

Does it wind the rope up evenly?

don't take up catfishing. I've seen anchors that could double as a monument.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
