This is a small plough-type anchor specifically to hold small craft such as a kayak or canow in mud or sand. Being made from soft but rigid nylon it will not scratch the finish of a fibreglass kayak or inflatable. The anchor can be 'set' in the usual fashion or simply pushed into mud, or sand on a beach when the water is shallow. The small area between the shank and the tip allows the anchor to change direction with less effort, especially during anchor retrieval. As the boat is pulled forward, over and above the anchor, the anchor rotates with the vertical pull and is easily retrieved.
The small blade on the shank completely eliminates the possibility of the anchor staying on its back. By creating a new balance point that rolls the anchor onto its tip and sets immediately. The small blade also increases holding power and stabilizes the angle of attack as the anchor buries because the small blade and the main blade are at the same angle and support each other.
