What kind of anchor are you looking for?

Anything around 20 lbs. I'm still waiting on my transom pulleys to run the line in the boat though. Plan on just using kettlebells since "drift boat" anchors cost an arm and a leg. Then you lose them and cry.

I've got a couple of 16# mushrooms...1 is coated, the other fluted and painted
Yours if we can work out logistics to get them to you. I'm in the Athens area from time to time, get closer to Atlanta when I have to.
Interested? PM me

Got the anchor pulley and kneeboard set up finally. Ever since I've been able to fish it working on it has taken a backseat. But hey you eat a whale one bite at a time




Fishnpreacher I appreciate the offer I picked one up tonight. Hopefully it'll hold. I really can't understand why the "drift boat" anchors cost over a hundred dollars. For what they are it truly makes no sense.

The skunks off boys


It never ceases to amaze me how a bobber and wooly bugger can catch anything

Fantastic, man! Boat looks great and I bet that smile could not be beaten off your face. Great job on this project.
