Chad Ferguson of the very informative website has created a great DIY Shallow Water Anchor Parts and Kits using Max-Gain Systems fiberglass. He has created a complete Do-It-Yourself (DIY) guide on his website: where he goes into great detail about his search to make a durable, strong, and inexpensive shallow water anchor. Chad has also produced a video (see below) in which he uses his new shallow water anchor and explains the process in detail. His DIY Shallow Water Anchor design can be utilized using any size of fiberglass rod allowing users the ability to anchor larger (or smaller) boats.
