So nice to not have to use anchors at the sandbar or use the spot lock on the trolling motor. Brackets and poles came from Cycle Springs in Palm Harbor, FL. 0526C7F1-99F4-478A-B604-312D889BEA2E.jpeg DE011AB5-E849-449D-99F3-BE7BA81F469D.jpeg

Very cool, I have to ask - how much? I would consider adding one, but unfortunately I do not think it would work well in Savannah due to the 8+ foot tides.

I use my regular anchor off the front with an Anchor Buddy (big bungee cord) and a Sand Spike buried on the beach. I back the boat in to the beach to off load, and then I let out the Sand Spike anchor line as the anchor buddy pulls the boat out to deep water (~12 feet).

Pretty cool setup. I always wondered what those things were on the back of bass boats around here.

I hope your deck holds up to the stress from those brackets.

I had the same thought. However, the hull cap is pretty strong, as there is a couple inches of material there on top.
Wouldn't want to take this setup on a trip to Bimini though, lol.

Very cool how they route the hydraulics through the brackets. Very clean install.

An FSH praying mantis! Unique look for sure. Without a real transom like we see in outboards, this is the epitome of adaptation.
