Jackson Coosa River Anchor
So after 3 season of using a drift chain on my Coosa I finally broke down and got a pyramid anchor setup. I looked at a lot of ideas for anchor setups, but the none of them would really work well on the Coosa. I started looking around the shop for things that I could make work and I came up with this idea. Using a 8" Yak Attack Track to mount on the flat part of the stern. From there I installed a Scotty Mount using two Yak Attack Mighty mounts on T slots. This created a pretty secure way to add an anchor, and also a system that was easy to slide on and off in the matter of seconds. After toying with the anchor I decided to add a Scotty Mini extension to raise it up out of the water more, and then I added a line to secure the system and to prevent to much torque on the Scotty system. I then added a few guides, a pulley and a cleat to make it easy to raise and lower. Very happy with how it came out. I will take it out this weekend and let you know how it works.
