DIY Shallow Water Anchor Part Kits


Max-Gain Systems offers shallow water anchor parts kits using 1/2 inch, 5/8 inch, 3/4 inch, and the beastly 1 inch Outer Diameter Rods in order to better tailor your anchor to your philosophy of use (POU) and boat size. Why pay triple the cost for an anchor fully assembled when you can get a FAR more capable anchor for less money? We offer: Black in all rod diameters, White in both 3/4 inch and 1 inch rod diameters, AND the exclusive Real Tree Max 5 (‘Camo’ option) in 3/4 inch. We offer modular designs to achieve anchor lengths over 8 feet in both our 3/4 inch and 1 inch rod diameters. The modular kits can be almost endlessly customized by adding extension kits. We also offer 4-in-1 paddle kit that add even greater capability to an endlessly useful system. For our rod box capable shallow water anchor parts kits, see here!

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.

Max-Gain Systems shallow water anchor kits are the most capable anchors that you can get for your boat. Fiberglass is saltwater corrosion proof, keeps you steady in the water with wind, waves, and current, and gives you, by far, the lightest and most cost efficient way to anchor your boat. Our anchor systems are fully customizable and expandable with additional extension kits and 4-in-1 paddle kits. We are currently working on even more accessories for this EXTREMELY capable system.
