    Anchor

    We use a box anchor. When collapsed, the line rolled up, and everything in the bag, it all easily slides down into the compartment.

      Box Anchor is the only thing I will ever use! I sit back and relax when the wind picks up and every one in party cove loses their bite with their other anchors and float towards the rocks. Heck I even hold my X22 and my buddies SG550 a 23+' wake boat with our anchor.

      Fyi don't get the small box anchor. For these wake boats you need the bigger one even though the small is rated for up to 25' it rating them at the lighter 25' boats.

      Another good thing about the Box anchor is that it uses way less line to set and keep you set than a traditional anchor. Traditional anchors need 10' of chain and a 3:1 scope (30' of rope for 10' deep of water, or 60' of rope in 20' water) and with wind they need 4:1. Box anchors only need 2:1 and no chain.

          I use the Fluke style. Just measure the distance between the securing pivots in the bow anchor storage area. It locks nicely into place. The biggest advice for that style anchor is you MUST have a leader chain and enough rope as almost any anchor will not hold if you are directly over the anchor. https://www.wholesalemarine.com/supe...?sku=T-D-95100

            Box anchors are great. Your home lake should determine what type of anchor you buy, what is the bottom of the lake you boat on most?

              I have tried several different types over the years. Box anchor is the best I have ever used.

                Depends on the bottom you are anchoring into, Limestone, rock bottom a Box anchor is pretty useless. Sailboats that go around the world use this style.

                  I like my box anchor but for 90% of the times we use an anchor it has been overkill for me. A fluke anchor that fits in the storage area is my go to. It's lighter, easier throw out and retrieve, and I just got tired of unfolding and folding the box anchor every time I used it.

                    I agree. I love my box anchor when it gets rough, or when I'm crammed in with others and don't want to risk dragging... but 9 times out of 10, I reach for my 20 lb coated navy anchor in the front center of the boat simply because its faster and easier to deploy.

                      There’s only two things I lose the constant battle over aboard.

                      First is the permanent clusterfack of the glovebox.

                      The second is getting my doo dads caught up in the bear trap of a box anchor.

                        There is only one lake I go to that has a rocky bottom where I can’t use my box anchor. The other 99% of the time the box anchor is choice.

                          Box Anchor is my choice- has never let me down
                          now the folding and unfolding- take the good with the bad
                          But, it works!

                            Has anyone tried the baby size? I have been in decently strong currents with wind and the small is LOCKED in so well that it makes me wonder if the baby would work? the small is 12 x 12 the baby is 10x 10. The slight weight reduction might make it easier to handle for my wife or kids.

                              i was just doing some reading on malibu crew this afternoon in prep for a trip with the boat in a couple weeks
                              seems like most of the larger boats on there use the "small" and many folks mention being able to tie up multiple 23' boats to a single small.
                              that makes me think for a smaller boat (im thinking of our x9) a baby one would be plenty.

                              planning on building a setup similar to this for the trip - using a baby box

                              a box anchor, two danik hooks, an anchor buddy, and a parallel line. seems like the stretch of the anchor buddy could really help keep the box planted firmly on the floor
