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.
