Testimonials

Duane, got my sandshark anchor today and I'm blown away man.

I was a bit concerned with ordering something like this for my boat over the internet especially for $300 bucks, because I have ordered stuff before and was disappointed when it arrived. Its hard to really get a good feel of any product from just pictures and descriptions.

Pictures don't do this thing justice though. I could tell it was solid and built well from the specs and photos of it, but when you first pick it up you know right away its built right and heavy duty. The steel shaft is thick and I was worried about the aluminum housing thinking it might give or crack, but its over a 1/4 inch thick... lol airplanes don't use aluminum that thick!

Thanks again for your help and talking to me about it and great job on building one kick-ass boat anchor. I'll be sending you some picks of the sandbar island on our next houseboat rally, you'll be getting some more orders then for sure everyone there want one of these. If you ever get down to Houston give me a shout.
Later - Roland

Best Jet Ski and PWC Anchor the SandShark JR.

Another great testimony about the SandShark JR:   "I just wanted to share my story and thank you for making such a wonderful quality product. I just recently purchased a new Yamaha WaveRunner and took it with me this past weekend to Traverse City, MI on vacation with my family. I had it anchored about 25 feet offshore on Lake Michigan with 2 SandShark Juniors, one in the front and one in the rear. On Sunday a massive storm tore through the region, with sustained winds of 70 mph and gusts of up to 90 mph. The winds lasted a solid 30 minutes, and all I could do was watch in horror as my WaveRunner was battered with massive waves. Several neighboring boats and docks were destroyed. The SandSharks held for nearly 25 minutes before they became dislodged. Luckily, the storm had settled enough to where I could run down and beach my WaveRunner before any serious damage was done. Had the SandSharks not held for as long as they did, my WaveRunner might not have been so lucky!" Buy the Best Forget the Rest!

How to Anchor a Boat in Sand?

To anchor a boat in sand, you need to have beach anchor and an anchor line. Begin by tying the end of the road to the boat and then tie the opposite end of the line to the beach anchor. Next, drive the boat to the shore line and twist the beach anchor into the sand as farther on the dry land as possible to allow the boat be more stable and firm.
 
The reason the SandShark Anchor is so effective at anchoring in sandbar and beach locations is because we  use a different anchoring concept. Traditional anchors are not effective for anchoring in tight shorelines, shallow water, or beach locations. If you’ve ever tried, then you probably know your boat is  either going to get beached or start drifting. The SandShark allows you to auger down into a solid footing using it’s stainless steel handle cranks and 5′ foot extension shaft with 4″ inch auger blades. Docking on the shoreline, shallow water, and in footing like gravel, muck, clay, shore, or sand is made easy with the SandShark!

How To Effectively Anchor A PWC

The goal of owning a personal watercraft is to spend as much time as possible out on the water riding, but even most PWC enthusiasts have to stop eventually. And often that stop isn’t at a convenient dock or launch ramp, but a really scenic beach where you might want to hang out for a while, or a riverbank where you might want to rest or have lunch during a scenic touring ride.

Looking for a Jet Ski Anchor?  A sand anchor is ideal for anchoring PWCs or Jet Skis in shallow water to keep the impeller off the beach.  The SandShark Jr is the best way to anchor your jet ski or PWC at the beach, sand, or in shallow water.  Don’t let this season go by without getting the best anchoring system for your watercraft!  The SandShark Jr is the best solution for a Jet Ski Anchor for the beach, sand, or in shallow water!

"Dear Duane, I was absolutely satisfied with your Sandsharkanchor. We at the Long Beach Lifeguard Facility run about 20 different Waverunners per year and we were trying out different types of anchors and yours seemed to work the best, even at Fire Island during some of the harshed tides of the season."

"Amazing Product this is well constructed and quality that is built for many years of use. It took me less than 2 minutes to set and and forget it no problem at all holding my jet ski and keeping it off the sand bar. This is well constructed and something that will pay for it self by the prevention of hull damage from the beach and other skis and boats. Held my Seadoo(3 person) in place in 1.5 ft waves amazing. Everyone else's anchors kept getting jerked loose and they kept having to readjust and I just relaxed and enjoyed myself :)."

The SandShark Jr is the best way to anchor your jet ski or PWC at the beach, sand, or in shallow water.  Don't let this boating season go by without getting the best anchoring system for your watercraft!  The SandShark Jr is the only solution for anchoring in the beach, sand, or in shallow water!  Here is the new design for 2013!

Dock Lines

What they do

Dock lines secure your boat to a SandShark Anchor or another dock either temporarily or semi-permanently.  This is very useful when spending afternoons at sandbars or beaches where permanent docks are not available.

How they work

When your boat is away from its regular slip or mooring, you need to have some designated nylon lines aboard, preferably with spliced eyes, ready for use when you tie up somewhere. We call these transient dock lines. The eye in the end is easily passed over the SandShark Anchor.  You can then turn the anchor into the ground without the rope twisting around the anchor when it is turning.  The bitter end is adjusted on board the boat or jet ski.  There are dozens of combinations of diameters and lengths but we recommend a minimum size of dock lines of 3/8" x 15' for jet ski's or boats.

Why Nylon?

Dock lines should be made from nylon, which has a superior combination of strength and stretch. Both three-strand and braided construction are common. Three-strand stretches more, is very abrasion- and snag-resistant and less expensive. Braided nylon is stronger, comes in colors, and has a nice feel or "hand".

Dock Line Recommendations for SandShark Anchors

  1. 3/8" x 15' for SandShark JR or Lite Series for Jet Ski's and PWC's  (minimum 15' length)
  2. 3/8" or 1/2" diameters for Ultimate or Lite Series Boat Anchors  (minimum 15' length)
  • 3/8" up to 22' of Boat Length
  • 1/2" up to 30' of Boat Length

Great places to Jet Ski in Florida–Be sure to have a jet ski or PWC anchor!

Florida
Panama City Florida: St. Andrews Pass (Panama City Florida where the St. Andrews Bay lets out into the Gulf) to the Shell Island side has an extremely good break but be ready for some rocks in close so riders must have complete control... Sebastain Inlet of course the inlet at Sebastain State Park is totally wilder either the north or south sides. (I would recommend the south for more big breaks but sharks are a problem) but just a few miles up the coast is a really good reef break (Spanish house) there will be a few cars parked of the side of a1a and a lot of surfers in the water,,, Don't get to high since this awesome break is from a very shallow reef which will catch the ass end of your ski and leave you stranded in a rough wall of water.

Florida-Central
A great place is Ponce de Leon Inlet on the east coast of central Florida. It sits just below Daytona Beach and north of New Smyrna. Although he lives in Orlando and has a choice of over 100 lakes within a 50 mile radius of his house, he prefers to drive the hour and a half to Ponce. It's always worth it! he'll take a lousy 3' wave over a flat lake any day!

The great thing about it is that it costs nothing to park or launch. FREE, baabeee! You can't beat that. There's a concrete ramp and a paved parking lot. However, the lot only has about 40 slots so get here early on a warm day. Another great thing is that if you want to get your extra gear (or even that third, fourth or fifth passenger) to the beach, you can drive into the County's Lighthouse Park ($2.00 per per person in vehicle) and be able to park within 50 yards of the beach, provided it's not a busy day.

However, no trailers are allowed in the park on weekends or holidays because of the crowds and limited space. Most people just carry their stuff to the beach via their PWC and leave their vehicles in the public lot near the ramp. On a good day, when there's an east or southeast wind and the tide is rolling out, you'll have 6-8' waves along the south jetty. In the center of the channel, I've seen rolling swells reach 10'. If the winds are not in your favor, you'll still get 3-5' waves which are nothing to be ashamed of. If a hurricane just happens to run up the coast as Floyd did a while back, you can count on huge swells in the deeper water and rocking action along the south jetty! Just be careful of floating debris at those times.

There are restrictions on where you can ride. If caught in the "no-no" zones, be prepared for a fine. New Smyrna mandates that all PWC stay 1500' from shore to protect the swimmers and surfers. So, it's not worth traveling south of the south jetty. Going north of the north jetty, you need to stay 300' from shore. No beaching until you reach Ormond Beach. As long as you stay in the Inlet, you can beach anywhere you like on the north or south sides. But (and that's a BIG BUT), there are pending ordinances to restrict these areas even further (like every other place in the country). Be sure to check with Volusia County Sheriff's Department for current details.

Florida-Southwestern
Sarasota County, Venice, FL. Take I-75 to exit 35, not 35A, just exit 35, which is Jacaranda road. Turn right off the exit, go down 2 traffic lights to Venice Ave., and turn right. Take that all the way down onto the island to the end of Venice ave. turn right at the stop sign. Turn left on the next stop sign. You will come up to Higel park boat launch on the right. From there you can go out to the gulf of Mexico by goin left on your pwc, or go straight into Roberts bay (sports rec area). When you go to the gulf..... you'll go through the jetti. You can beach off South Jetti, but not North Jetti. Waves are big, I 've seen them about 8' rollers. Roberts Bay is an "excellent" place to freestyle jetski, but no big waves in there. Everything is free, launching and parking. Camping is on U.S 41 about 5-6 miles north of Venice ave. It's called Oscar Shears state park. It costs about $15 per night.


Places to launch:
Desoto County Sunny Breeze Golf Course (AKA: Liverpool) Just South of Fort Ogden, turn at the entrance to Sunny Breeze Golf Course and follow road all the way to the end. (There are some curves and turns, just stay on the "main" road). You will see the boat ramp and picnic pavilion at the end.

Charlotte County Harbor Heights Park. From I-75 get off at exit 30 and head towards Harbor Heights. Watch for "park and boat ramp sign". Nice picnic area with tables and pavilions. There are other places to launch but these two seem to be the best and easiest to find. Your best bet is to stock up on gas and also pack a lunch. There is a restaurant with gas north of the boat ramp at Sunny Breeze Golf Course called "Nav-a-Gators".
