Although everyone wants their performance boat to go fast, there are times when you need it to sit still. That’s when an anchor comes into play. It will keep you from drifting when you put your engine in neutral and shut it off to enjoy a snack or chat.
An anchor will also keep your boat in place should your engine cut out on you. That can be especially important if you are far offshore or your boat is being pushed by the tide, current or wind. The last thing you want for you and your crew is to go over the dam, into the surf or on to a reef. Anchors should be a key safety component on board every boat.
Bakes Marine carries a big selection of boat anchors, sand spikes, lines and accessories. You’ll find traditional anchors with flukes here as well as mushroom anchors. Our inventory of boat anchor types can cover just about any body of water you venture on to including lakes rivers bays and oceans. If you’re looking to save space on board your boat, consider one of our box anchors. You can fold and stow away these compact boat anchor systems when you’re not using them. Although they are light and compact, they offer superior holding ability. In fact, this type of anchor requires only half as much anchor scope as traditional designs.
If you run your boat up on the beach for a picnic or some sunbathing, our sand spikes offer an easy way to make sure your transportation doesn’t float away while you’re partying on the shore. We carry plenty of anchor accessories too. These include anchor lines, ropes and chains for deploying and retrieving anchors as well as hardware like shackles, chain links and rope thimbles.
