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

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!

How to anchor a boat in the sand or shallow water.

The best way to anchor a boat in the shallow water is to use a sand auger.  Most throw-out styles anchors won't find anything firm to hold onto in the sand.  These offer amazing holding power and stability when compare with with anchors that lay on surface.  With an auger you can reach far enough down into the sand to get a firm grip to provide you with great holding power and stability.  An auger style anchor will act as a portable dock in the shallow water so your boat will stay put!

So next time you want to spend some time at the beach or sandbar use a one of these to make your time enjoyable!
