Use a Boat or Jet Ski Sand Auger Anchor in the Water for Best Results.

We have found that when using a sand auger anchor for your boat or jet ski, it works better in the water than on the shore or beach.  The reason for this is because the moving water keeps the hole around the auger filled in.  For example, try to dig a hole a few feet into the water along a beach or shoreline.  It is impossible because the moving water keeps washing sand constantly into the hole.

When the augers are on the dry beach or shore, the hole created from placing the auger in is loose and not packed around the shaft.   When they are in the water, the water keeps the sand packed around the shaft and creates a "suction" on the auger and the shaft which is almost impossible to "pull-out".  When placed correctly an auger anchor will not be "pulled out" it will have to be "turned out".  This also keeps your watercraft away from the shore to prevent damage.  So better holding power and less damage!

The next time you parked your boat, jet ski, or pwc at the sandy beach put your auger anchor in the shallow water rather that the dry beach.  Enjoy!

Use more than one SandShark for boats over 30′

I went to the local marina today to drop off a few Sand Shark Anchors for the upcoming sale. The guys there were busy surprisingly, lots of boaters in getting service work done, mostly houseboats. One of the customers saw me struggling to carry them in and helped me out thankfully. I handed him 3 of them... he kinda grunted and gave me a look, that's about 50 pounds of steel.

We started talking and he was pretty curious, he liked the idea and design, but thought the auger blades were kind of small. He asked if I thought the anchor would hold his 40 foot houseboat on mostly a sandy bottom, off an island on the lake with a small little beach for docking. He mentioned it's a pain every time they go out, and needs to constantly watching his pvc spikes and anchor lines tied on shore to make sure they don't get pulled out. I told him two Sand Shark Anchors would hold his boat in place with no trouble, usually I recommend 1 Anchor for a 30ft boat and 1 extra anchor for every 15ft of boat after that. A lot depends on the water conditions too, but in his case it wasn't an issue.

We went out to the docking ramp near some shallow water and I let him auger one down into the clay and and sand bottom near the water on the shoreline. He flipped out the handles and cranked it down to about a foot and half pretty easily. I told him to stop there and try to pull it out. He gave it a couple big tugs, then laughed saying, "Well I doubted the auger blade size, but I probably should have known better... you seem to be selling quite a few of these and they're heavy duty. I've seen these around and never imagined they were this solid." I told him that he wasn't the first to doubt it, most people look shocked when they first hold one, commenting on the weight. I'm always more than happy in letting people try out the Sand Shark for the first time and auger it down, then try to pull it out, gets them every time!

How to keep your anchors from being pulled-out.

Put an auger anchor just into the water.  Not on the dry shore, but far enough in the water to keep the bottom of the auger covered with water.  With beach spikes in the sand, there is not a natural way to keep sand packed around the shaft, plus there is no "pull-out prevention" like an auger blade.  When an auger anchor is in the water, the water will keep the sand packed around the shaft and blade, this keeps the anchor firmly in place.

The water weight applies downward pressure onto the sand.  This creates an air tight suction which also keeps the anchor in place.  You will find that with the SandShark Anchor, you will not be pulling them out.  You will have to "unscrew" it out of the sand.  With the SandShark you have a 1" solid shaft with a 4" blade planted into the bottom.  Your kids won't be pulling that out!

How to use your SandShark Anchor

To position the SandShark:

  1. Remove from case and extend to desired length.
  2. Hand- tighten the center knob clockwise.*
  3. Rotate handles 180 degrees.  Extend the handles so that you can apply downward pressure without the  handles folding down.
  4. Pick a spot 2-5' away from boat.  Auger clockwise into the ground until a firm base is established.  This may take several revolutions.  Auger to a depth where a firm base is established (Approximately 1-3').
  5. After auger obtains a firm base, extend or lower the anchor using the center knob and re-tighten.  The optimum position is to have the handles at or above water level,  if this is not possible fully extend to maximum length.*
  6. Secure to boat and enjoy your time worry-free!  The SandShark will keep the waves from beaching your boat!

To remove the SandShark:

  1. Release the anchor from the boat.
  2. Fold the handles upwards, rotate handles 180 degrees, then fold upwards so you can apply upward pressure to the SandShark.
  3. Turn the handles counter-clockwise while applying upward pressure. This may take several revolutions.
  4. After the auger is released from the bottom, rinse away any excess sand and grit.
  5. Rotate handles 180 degrees, then fold down
  6. Loosen center knob, collapse the anchor, and re-tighten the center knob*
  7. Place in desired storage location.

*please note -- Always re-tighten the center knob.

*please noteThe SandShark will work even if completely submerged in the water.


Attach one SandShark to the front of the boat and one SandShark at the rear of the to prevent side-to-side swaying.
