Fact: the leading cause of premature wear on the painted hulls of modern Yamaha watercraft and deterioration of a Sea-Doo’s carbon seal has been owners beaching and shallow starting their personal watercraft. And as much as you’ve seen The Watercraft Journal publish pictures doing the same, the fact remains true, watercraft should be anchored to shore with a tether, and started in 3-feet of water or deeper. It’s literally written out in every single owner’s manual.
We at The Watercraft Journal have been hammering this point ad nauseam for years now. So in an effort to better inform and educate new and novice PWC owners, we’ve partnered with possibly the single-most popular, most highly-regarded personal watercraft anchor, Sand Docker.
These lightweight, all-aluminum sand anchors are entirely American-made in Jupiter, Florida; and are CNC-controlled plasma cut and TIG welded together, giving the consumer the strongest, most durable anchor possible.
The Sand Docker anchor is uniquely designed; bucking tradition pole, wing or claw anchor designs, the Sand Docker doesn’t displace sand (which can easily dislodge in rough surf), but rather punctures the soft beach’s surface like a syringe.
Topped with a grippy foot-shaped pad, you simply tie up your PWC to the large eyelet and press the Sand Docker flat with the sand. You can even walk on top of it without hurting your feet!
We at The Watercraft Journal have tested PWC anchors before and found most of them clumsy at best, banging around inside of your bow storage while you ride. With Sand Docker’s new Strap-It Holder, your Shorti PWC anchor stays nice and secure, even in rough conditions! The hollow tube and angled tip is distinctly unique to Sand Docker and the first of its kind – so don’t accept any copies or rip-offs! Sand Docker did it first and continues to do it best!
