"Drifter" Drift Boat Anchor Rope Bag
We call it "The Drifter"! This is the perfect anchor rope and rode bag for drift boats that don't require the capacity, bells and whistles that come with our Original, PRO and XL anchor rope bags. But it is still built with the same materials and quality as our other anchor rope/rode bags!
We developed this drift boat bag from input from drift boat guides and other drift boat fisherman that wanted a quality product, but only needed to store about 100' of rope with room to drop their anchor in there as well.
We have designed this drift boat anchor rope bag to hold about 150' of 1/2" rope and comes in at about 10" diameter by about 13" tall. We also added 2 top carrying handles, as well as a stainless steel D-ring to hang the bag on a clip or hook in your drift boat to keep it off the deck if desired.
This drift boat anchor rope bag is not only for the drift boat angler, it is also for those boaters that don't require as much rope and rode storage that our Original, PRO and XL anchor rode bags offer.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Will the drifter bag handle 3/8" x 250' Extreme Max 3006.2505 BoatTector Double Braid Nylon Anchor Line with Thimble?
I don't think it would handle it. We obviously can't try every rope size and type in our bags, but considering it would hold about 150' of 1/2" rope, I think that it may hold more like 200' of the 3/8" at best.
I recommend you bump up to our COHO or Original.
Thanks for the question!
Should also add to my previous question about using your Drift boat anchor rope bag with a 20 lb Pyramid Anchor, my anchor rope is only 50' of 1/2 double braid nylon. I would purchase two of these bags if they will work. Because the Pyramid anchor is relatively compact (compared to many other styles of anchors) and I'm only to be putting 50' of 1/2" double braid nylon anchor rope in each bag, perhaps a small version version of your Drift boat anchor bag would save me some space in the boat, and some $?? Thank you. Cheers,
If your question is, do we have a smaller Drifter Anchor Rope Bag, we don't, sorry.
We can do custom size bags, but it won't save you any $$ since they are custom one offs. If you purchase 1 and find out how tall you would like the second bag, let us know and we will quote it for you.
Thanks for the question!
Is the Drift boat anchor rope bag strong enough to hold a 20 lb pyramid anchor? Risk of the pyramid point piercing the bag's fabric?
The Drifter Rope Bag will be strong enough to hold your anchor with ease. When we tested these bags, we put a 40lb cement block inside and let it hang by the handles for almost a year with no issues.
As far as your pyramid anchor piercing the mesh material, the material is very strong, but can be cut by sharp objects, but I don't think that after a few times of your anchor running over the rocks that it would be sharp enough to do any damage. But back to the cement blocks we put in the bags, they had sharp corners and did not damage the bags.
All that being said, even though the material is very strong, I cannot guarantee you will not cut the bag.
Thanks for the question!

I have 100' of 1/2" rode spliced to 20' of 1/4" G4 galvanized chain for the stern/spare anchor on my sail boat. Will the bag hold up to the weight and any potential abrasion?
Hi Mike, I'm pretty sure that it will hold all of that rode, since it will hold 150' of 1/2" rope to the top. As far as the abrasion, the mesh is very durable and will hold up for years. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards, Paul Anderson
Hi, I’m interested in the drifter bag. I am looking to store a 15lbs navy anchor and 60 of 3/8” rope. For our 18’ boat. I think this bag would work?
If you don't mind the anchor sticking out of the top of the bag, it will work just fine. I'm basing this off a typical 15lb navy anchor being about 8" wide and about 14" tall. The Drifter anchor rope bag is about 10" around by about 12" tall.
Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any more questions.
What are the exact deminsions? It says "about 10x12". It looks larger than that in the pictures.
Our Drifter Anchor Rope Bag is no bigger than 10x12. The dimensions are based off of our raw cut size, meaning the round bottom is cut at 10" and when it's sewn on, you lose about a half inch or so. The same goes for the wrap, it is cut at 12", then is sewn on and you lose about a half inch or so because of the hem.
I hope this answers your question and don't hesitate to give us a call anytime.
Does this bag have the same strap and buckle system as the original to keep the rope from falling out?
Hi Paul, No, the Drifter does not.
