Bungee Anchor Lines (Anchor Buddy)

Has anyone experience of these bungee anchor lines (Anchor Buddy)for beaching, saw one in use at the weekend but can only seem to find them for sale in the states, seems a great idea!

sorry this isn't an answer, but i'd be interested in similar myself.

Saw it in use a couple of years ago, approaching a beach we threw out the stern anchor on the bungee, ran in to the beach and unloaded the main anchor, tied off with enough slack then let the bungee pull the boat back out in to deeper water. It saved anyone having to adjust the anchor for tidal movement (over a couple of hours only) and also anyone having to swim out to recover the boat after lunch - just pulled it in against the elastic when wanted to leave.

Any source of 'used' bungee cord? I think the stuff we saw in use was actual bungee jumping cord, elastic inside a protective nylon sheath.

Anyone able to suggest suppliers of this?

Don exactly that, I thought it was a fantastic idea and was great for beaching for a bbq and leaving stuff on the boat and as you say just pulling in and retrieving as and when you needed it! Saves getting wet every time!

Any sources anyone?

I have seen these sold at the Southampton Boat Show, I think they were called the EZ Stretch Mooring lines? Do a google search
