Re: Anchor breakaway

When using small cable ties/mono, always leave a little slack in the chain/rope from bottom of anchor to top eye of anchor. this makes breaking soo much easier than having it tight!. hope this helps

Re: Anchor Trolley

You could also use an open/cam cleat to trap the release line if your worried about knots fouling the ring, i just used a simple loop of shock cord next to paddle keeper to attach release cord to, this gives cushioning effect. Also worth a mention, you may find anchor trolley tries to creep forward/...

Re: Rod holders?

yeah, only just made that, not tested it out yet. I know sistema plastic boxes are pretty good as an alternative storage solution. Most use the meat keeper box i believe.
