Hey guys, I am looking at buying an anchor for my seadoo GTR, I see there is lots of choices between sand anchoring a and stainless steel anchors. Which is best for the ski?

I have both.
I prefer the 10" folding anchor as no matter the current or conditions the ski doesn't move.
For stowage I keep it in a thick purpose made bag so it doesn't rattle about and damage the ski.
Both anchors work but conditions decide.

I've used 2 types and I prefer this
Have one of these also. It had a vinyl coating, but that wore off quickly.
Found a screw in type at a garage sale, but haven't tried it yet.

There are several threads on here discussing the Cooper anchor. Seems to work well in many situations.
Which anchor you need depends in part on what material the bottom is. Sand, soft mud, rocks, gravel, fast moving water, waves, different anchors work better in some situations than others.
Learn how to use an anchor, why you need a length of chain rode, how much rope length is appropriate. Even the best anchor will not work well if used the wrong way or in the wrong situation.
I currently carry a Cooper anchor in each watercraft along with an Anchor Buddy elastic rode, plus a float to mark the anchor location in the water and make it easy to return and reconnect to the waiting anchor.

I have a grapnel anchor and its useless without a chain, havent tried it with a chain as yet
Will try a small danforth next I think
I'm almost always anchoring in sand

Grapnel sucked trying to get it to hold in sand. I bought a danforth with a 4 foot section of chain, what a difference. It will hold both of my skis in rough conditions.
