    Interesting question. Maybe get another and use two?

    I've heard that there are bigger ones for jet boats, but no idea where to get them.

    I use an additional meter of elastic rope. Makes a big difference.

    The density of the material you put inside the anchor bag makes a difference. Not just the weight out of the water, the density.

    When the 'sand' anchor is submerged in water what matters is how much denser the anchor material is compared to water. If you filled your anchor bag with 35 pounds of water it would not 'weigh' much at all when submerged.

    I suspect when you lower your current sand filled anchor into the water the 'weight' when it is fully in the water seems much less, and it actually is, in terms of holding power.

    Try putting denser material in your anchor bag or change to another type of anchor, such as the Cooper anchor.

    I bought a 4lb Danforth anchor and added 4 ft of chain, then connected that to about 18 feet of anchor line that connects to my ski. I can't believe how well it holds, even held both my RXT and STX-12F in pretty heavy waves. One of the biggest things is to make sure you have enough line, you could use a 70 LB sand bag, but if you only have 5 feet of line our skis would pull it.

    I don't have the luxury of having sand to put in my bag anchor. The ground here is hard as bricks for the most part. I have to track down several bigger rocks and put them in the bag. I've never really had any problems of it staying put.
