Each trailer is equipped with ten 25 lb. Danforth anchors, fixed with six feet of chain. A length of poly line should be tied with a loop knot on both ends and fixed to the anchor and bridle with shackles. Before tying the line to the bridle end the anchor buoy needs a knot tied before and after the float.
Prepare the line with tape before cutting.
Tie a loop knot, and secure the shackle with a tie wrap.
Typical anchor, bridle and boom configuration
Booms can also be secured to land using the steel reinforcing rods. The trailer contains six 8' 1/2" rebar to be used as land anchors, which can be hammered in place with a sledge hammer.
