    Go to academy and get you a 6ft rebar pole holder(black with a blue top). Thier around 20 bucks, Hammer it down about 2ft in the water, it will hold it. I have tryed all type of anchors with chains nothing worked. I know (your asking yourself how is a pole holder going to hold my ski with the waves coming in all the time) I don't understand it eather but it works. It holds my gp1300r all day & it worked on a buddy of 3 seater sea-doo even on a choppy day. let me know when you try it out.

    With any anchor the key is the length of the rope. Should be a min of 5X the depth.

    I like the sandbag anchor because it takes up so little room and weighs nothing to carry but you can make it as heavy as you need. Its been the only anchor that has worked reliably for me everytime.

    Of course, we dont have many sandy beaches. Thats why I cant use the spike. Its too hard to drive into any hard or rocky ground out here. Probably perfect in Florida, though.

    I have also had some luck with the claw style anchor. It seems to work fairly well in mud or rocks so long as it initially sets correctly. The downside is carrying the extra weight and its gnarly shape shreds stow bags!
