    Opinions needed on water stands

    I'm tired of my anchor pulling up on me in rough waters...
    I have the spiral one that you screw into the sand
    Thinking about getting a water stand for the rxp
    Any pros and cons of having one?

    This is the one I'm thinking about...This one has a large water rack for sit down skis

    Thanks

    never used one for my PX i've seen the ones they use for the stand ups. i know there not very small. you COULD take it on your ski to wherever but its going to be awkward. i could only assume they work great. they do for the standups!

    Alternative to the stand.

    Check out the link below. I use 2 of these. One on the bow. Drive up to the shore and hook another on the rear. Let the stretch pull the jetski away from the shore. retrieve it by pulling on the stern line.

    Put a couple of bouy floats on the ends of the lines so you can find them. The stretching keeps boat wakes/waves from pulling you anchors.

    The one im looking at, they make the water rack two different sizes..
    The bigger rack fits sitdowns and the smaller rack fits standups
    It folds up by using the scissor technology but yea would be awkward to travel with

    Just never seen anyone with one...

    Hmm never heard about the stretch idea..maybe something to consider
    deafinatly cheaper

    I used to have a ton of trouble with waves and big ass boats throwing their wakes up on the beach. Current and wind wouldn't help either. I noticed that up and down motion and jerking would lift and drag any anchor. The stretch gives allowing the ski to move without jerking the anchor loose. The stretch retracts and pulls the ski back into place.

    Leave one anchored a little off shore with a bouy on the end of the line so you can find the hook floating when you return. Hook it up ride up to the beach stretching the line and hook up another stretch line that is anchored on shore. Two lines will keep the ski from moving all over the place with the wind, current, waves etc. Let the off shore stretch line retract and pull the ski out away from the beach. When you are ready to ride. Pull the ski back with the line you have on shore. It works great. When everyone is going for a swim to get their skis and/or re-anchoring. I just sit and watch while sipping on my redbull. Believe me it works. You will not be disappointed, just don't forget and leave them in the water by accident when you leave.

    i use that fork style anchor in your first picture. i usually tie/clip the nose to that anchor cuz the bow breaks waves a little better w/o so much moving around and just and type of tree stump, pole, tulies to tie the back rope to. every time is a different situation and set up, just gotta figure out what works best when.
