1 Kg NYLON Cooper Anchor for PWC and boats to 3.5m Cooper Anchors set in their own length and dig deeper into the sea bed than most, if not all other anchors. This means more holding power from smaller and lighter anchors. Dimensions (L x W x H) 405 x 175 x 165mm HOW & WHY COOPER ANCHORS WORK The holding power of any anchor is directly related to how deeply it sets and holds the sea bed. Most anchors on the market today are restricted by design to plowing along near the surface of the sea bed and rarely, if ever disappear completely below the sea bed. Cooper Anchors very simple design with its weighted tip, straight streamline shank and small blade are designed to completely disappear below the sea bed and stay there even through wind and tide changes. The small area between the shank and the tip, (See picture above) allow Cooper Anchors to change direction with less effort, especially during anchor retrieval. As the boat is pulled forward, over and above the anchor, the anchor rotates with the vertical pull and is retrieved with the same effort, or less than was used in its setting. Protecting our reefs. To protect our reef and reduce the risk of becoming permanently hooked up, simply move the shackle to the hole in the base of the shank, and use a cable tie through the top hole and chain. If the anchor does become stuck, the cable tie breaks and the anchor releases backwards without damaging the reef. When anchoring in anything other than reef The Main hole should be used
Tremendo artículoLiviano y seguro, muy buen anclaje

Unbelievable holding powerWe do a lot of boating on lake Michigan. Have not had much success with anchoring wave runners in sand due to winds & waves. This past week end we tried theCOOPER ANCHOR 1Kg/2.2lb Anchor. We bought the 5/16 Inch chain 5 feet long. Also the nylon rope with buoy. The lake was 2 foot to 4 foot swells on main lake. Winds were around 10 to 14 Knots. We puled into a bay . Dropped Anchor Chain & rope. We had two wave runners we were driving. After sitting with two close friends for two Hrs & had to Head back to car 15 Miles South . It did not look as if either wave runner had moved . I could not pull Anchor off bottom until I stood over top of theCOOPER ANCHOR & pulled straight up. The Anchor dug deep into sand & was not going to move. This is the BEST Anchor I have ever owned. With winds & waves this Anchor did not move. I will be looking to see if they design a Anchor for my 25 foot boat. Doug L
Ease of use!!!Best thing ever, I want thank Cooper anchors for an amazing product. Especially the way it correct its self before setting.

Interesting little anchor.Bought for my 2019 Yamaha Waverunner VXR. Haven’t had a chance to use it in deep water or any significant swell yet, but it’s definitely an interesting concept. I was looking for a lightweight anchor that wouldn’t beat the tar out of my front storage compartment, and didn’t take up a lot of room. This fit the bill, and a quick Google search revealed that people all over the world swear by these Cooper Anchors. The one thing I will say from my preliminary tests done on the shore of our backyard pond is to mind the instructions about how much chain VS rope VS water depth you are using. This is known as “scope”, and it’s a concept that mariners have used for hundreds if not thousands of years when anchoring. I found the best results for my application to be a section of nylon rope approximately 4-6 feet long directly attached to the anchor, followed by a section of chain approximately 4 feet long, and then more rope from the other end of the chain up to the watercraft. At the surface end of the anchor line, I used an 8-inch plastic bouy (found here on Amazon for a few bucks), and a galvanized quick-release carabiner (also found here on Amazon) to attach to the front eyelet in the hull of the Waverunner. That way if I accidentally drop the end of the anchor line, it doesn’t sink to the bottom of the Chesapeake Bay with my anchor, chain, and line going with it. Finally, I found a cheap fabric style “Drawstring gym backpack” (again, Amazon) that perfectly fits the anchor, chain, and 60 feet of nylon line to keep it all organized in the bilge until I need it. As novel of a concept as the Cooper Anchor is, it does rely more on physics than brawn and sheer weight to accomplish it’s staying power. With that said, I would have no doubts trusting it on a calm day in nominal conditions – i.e. with the anchor on the beach and the watercraft a few feet offshore. Would I trust it mooring in 40 feet of open water with a heavy current or huge tidal swing? Probably not. At just 1kg (a little more than 2lbs), it really does rely on you to have the anchor and line setup for *absolute* optimal scope given the water depth you’re anchoring in. And for that reason, I wouldn’t count on it the way I would a heavier traditional anchor. But who knows, maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised the more I use and come to trust it.

It works!We live at the Jersey Shore and have a large jet ski. Due to the sandy bottom of the area we could not find an anchor that would hold in the sand due to tidal currents.We saw this anchor being used and the owner told me how great it was. We tried it and it was fantastic!. Held in place during the tide transition with strong currents. Highly recommend!

Best thing we bought to take out Waverunners to the beachBought two of these, one for each waverunner. They are excellent!!! Just connect it, toss it in the water and it grabs hold and holds tight. We have two 2022 Yamaha FX SVHO’s and these anchors hold them in place great! We use them at the beach in sand. Have not tried them in silt / lake or river conditions.
Works really well and so light won’t damage your storage area. Its held 4 3 person skis no issues.Yamaha waverunner at anchor on large lake.
I unbelievableThis is the best anchor for my seadoo. Light, does not destroy the interior of the seadoo. In 25 years of having a seadoo this is my best anchor. But not good in rocks but mud and sand it’s awesome.
