    You do not want to use a full size anchor. When you are riding it will be flopping around and break the storage bucket. You need to find a sand anchor bag and just fill it with rocks when you get to your rest point, then empty the rock and toss it in the storage...

    I get you point and I see it the same way, but what if my jet ski fails and I need to anchor it when I'm outside in the open water to avoid it from going even farther?

    jajaja it's funny you say that because just a moment ago my girlfriend told me to stop thinking about everything that could happen and just put the damn thing in the water already. It's my first seadoo and I'm just to overcautious.

    be safe, take your time, and get used to the machine before you get all carried away. They are a ton of fun, but they will bite you if you try to do to much, too soon.

    If your ski fails out on the water like that chances are the water will be so deep you wont have enough rope/chain length on the anchor to hit bottom...and if you can hit bottom chances are that means you're close enough to shore to swim it in.

    I carry and use a bag anchor like Tiny mentioned and also carry a good tow line. I almost always ride alone and if my ski ever died out on the water the last thing I would do is abandon ship...unless of course it was sinking and my bilge pump couldn't keep up.

    I would always rather take my chances sitting safely on a dead ski waiting for another ski or boat to come by to flag down and ask for a tow back to shore than anchoring it and leaving for whatever reason you were thinking.

    Jump,

    If you want more storage simply remove the front bucket, as it opens up a lot of storage area. I use 2 waterproof storage bags and keep a tow rope, tools, anchor bag, bumper protectors, and dry clothes. Stuff them under the big fuel intake hose and they don't move at all. Put the fire extinguisher under the fuel tank straps.

    I've been running this way since the first week I got the ski.

    My GTR didn't even come with the bucket...plenty of space up front and I even still have my partition in place.
