BOX ANCHOR: BOX ANCHOR SETS QUICKLY IN ANY CONDITION
WakeWorld 2/07
For many boaters, anchoring is an annoying and time-consuming process. It can require heavy chains, multiple attempts and a lot of patience. But in even the most unruly bottom conditions, the Box Anchor from Slide Anchor secures fast.

Sand, mud, rock and grass present no competition for the Box Anchor. In deep or shallow water, high wind or swift current, its fixed scoop design effortlessly sets with as little as a 2 to 1 scope. It doesn't require "powering down" to take a set. Wind and current changes are no problem, as the anchor rolls over and resets in seconds.

Retrieval is also easy.  The Box Anchor's narrow side panels eliminate upward resistance and the lead arm rolls backward to pop the anchor off the bottom.

Developed to conquer the harsh marine environment, this state-of-the-art anchoring system requires no chain and half the anchor line of traditional anchors in protected waters. When offshore, it's advised to use a length of chain on the anchor to compensate for swell and further reduce line chaffing.

Built for years of corrosion-resistant performance, even in saltwater, the Box Anchor is hot-dip galvanized with stainless steel hardware.

A stabilizing bar and return spring simplify locking the anchor open for use and collapsing it for compact storage. It comes with a storage bag.

Available in four models for crafts ranging from PWCs to 70' boats, Slide Anchor's Box Anchor starts at $109.95. Article found at wakeworld.com
 
Shore Spike: Spike Secures Craft to Shore & Sandbars
Houseboating World 4/07
Boaters often have a hard time securing beached boats and mooring off sandbars and rocky shorelines. Thanks to Slide Anchor's Shore Spike, any size craft can easily tie up in that perfect spot.

This innovative on/offshore spike works great in hard pack or soft sand, in shallow water or even off rocky and shale shorelines. Boaters simply drive the tubular handle downward to send the spike blade into the shore. A mooring line can then be tied to the heavy-duty lower ring. The spike removes just as easily, by effortlessly driving the handle upwards.

With rocky or shale conditions, the spike should be driven a few feet offshore where the ground is softer. The open tubular handle won't trap air, water or debris. A second durable ring at the top of the handle is for a line and buoy to safely mark the submerged spikes location.

Specially-designed for the harsh marine environment, it is hot dip galvanized to prevent corrosion. Available in three sizes, the extra-large Shore Spike from Slide Anchor covers boats over 30'. At 18 lbs. and 48" long, it retails for $89.95. For craft up to 30', the 10 lb., 39" large model costs $69.95. An 8 lb., 31-1/2" small spike manages PWC and boats up to 22' and is $59.95. Each comes with a storage bag. Article found at houseboatingworld.com
