    Question Which anchor do you think is better for my PWC?

    Which anchor do you think would have more holding power for a PWC? I will be anchoring in soft sand in less than 3 feet or water.

    i have the exact one as the bottom one and it suck in the sand so i bought one thats the same design as the top one and it work s great. My area is all soft sand and everyone i know uses the same style as the top pic.

    You shouldnt leave it in over night but if you do id use two anchors one on the front and back then that way one anchor will alway be holding it depending on wind and currents.

    I also own the bottom anchor and it's pretty much useless. I would recommend a screw in anchor.

    I have the top one, and I use it all the time. I anchor generally in about 4 feet with a sandy bottom, and so long as you set it well it will hold forever. Weighs about 2 pounds, so it's not a big weight issue.

    I'm going with a sand bag anchor. I can see myself stubbing a toe on one of the other ones while wading to my ski.

    Storing those metal anchors must be a pain and space wasting. And imagine if it gets loose and you don't hear it banging around and smashing your storage box to death. Get a sand anchor. They work well and if you find a rock at the beach throw it in the anchor too for really good anchoring. When you're done, turn it inside out to empty it, rinse it and fold or ball it up. Takes up about the space of a softball.

    The purple anchor is coated with a nice rubbery substance that makes it both non-slip, and non-damaging inside the compartment. I usually have mine in the bag at the bottom, and I've never had it go anywhere in 2 years. I do quite a bit of rough water riding too.

    We have one similar to the top one. It works really well. The only time it really moves is in like 3-4 foot waves with a current.
