    new trolley anchor design??




    Had issues with the copper wire holding good, thinking of someting like a mushroom anchor design for more contact with the sand and should dig in well, but still able to pull free

    Cut out a smaller cup to try, but advise the others with the copper wires worked good, just experimenting with this.....poured and cut some new style jigs, cleaning up the lead then headed for paint,
    Just part of the future trip, plus it's cool in the basement

    Drill some relief holes for breaking free , going to use egg weight to add to the cup plate for easier application, eye bolt for attachment,fender washer& nylon lock nut.....we will see iffin it works....

    Just poured 6 claw anchors, with 6 more to go......running out of ready lead for the 4lb pot

    50 jigs poured & painted and starting the tying....for the future trip

    I'm familiar with how anchors and anchor lines are used on the east coast, Is it the same ?
    I get the feeling it isn't but I'd like to know how you do it , anyone have any pictures of there rigs ?
