Thanks for all the responses to the shanty anchor thread from a few weeks ago.....this is what i have come up with. Feel free to copy or use any part of this set up for yourself! BUT: Ive never seen or used a shanty anchor. I dont know if the rope, knots, hardware, aluminum tube, etc., or whole set up will work. Use at your own risk. This is a pic of the anchor itself. It wraps up neatly and is feather light. Its 16" long.
