Anchors for Inflatable Boats



Hello folks

Whilst browsing the IBS site (great site) www.inflatable-boat-supplies.co.uk I came across this 'mushroom' anchor (keep it in the dark and feed it on buls**t) especially for SIBs. I suppose it has no sharp edges to puncture the boat!

Looks good to me (but then so does a slice of well grilled bacon). Anyway folks, anyone used one? Do they work?

I'm thinking of getting one ready for 'The Great Orkney SIB Expedition 2003' (did I mention that we are going to Orkney by SIB?)

I'd be interested in any comments on them too, they look like they're just what I'll need for my SIB.

Cheers,

Those storage bag/bow dodgers look good as well dont they.
I guess the anchor just works by sheer weight? Perfect for a
lunch stop on a sunny Orkney beach, what?

And just to prove that there has been at least one sunny day on Orkney since colour film was invented........
