Anchor Buddy, 14' - 50' Blue
The Anchor Rope that Stretches
Poly-covered bungee cord stretches from 14’ to 50’. Anchor Buddy takes the shock out of your anchor line and makes it much easier to anchor offshore.
New and Improved Design
Simply drop anchor about 30’ out, proceed to shore, and Anchor Buddy stretches, while your anchor stays set. As you pay out your bow line, Anchor Buddy retracts, anchoring your boat safely offshore. Also works great for anchoring in rough water.
Easy, safe and convenient. For temporary anchoring / mooring only.
Use the Anchor Buddy with our new Beach Spike Anchor to compliment the setup, just select "With Beach Anchor" when adding to cart and save on the package!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I've been looking for a solution for an anchor marker setup. Something that would stretch with depth and/or a tidal increase and be strong enough to back-pull a stuck anchor. If your anchor buddy was attached to a 55lb delta type anchor, and then to some sort of mooring ball, would it work as an anchor marker, and be strong enough to pull back on if the anchor got stuck under some debris (I realize there would be a practical limit to the amount of force)? Also, if you think this would be a reasonable use, what size float would you think would be required to provide enough buoyancy for the Anchor Buddy to stretch with waves/tide/depth?
The Anchor Buddy is rated at 4000 lbs. so assuming your stuck anchor wouldn't require more that that to release, you should be ok.
As far as an anchor marker, I would use the Polyform A3 bouy, which I think is rated to hold about 125lbs under it.
Thanks for your interest.
