Instructions for Using the Anchor Ring

Ironwood Pacific Outdoors

Anchor Ring Disclaimer
Always anchor in accordance with Coast Guard guidelines and regulations.

  • Use extreme caution when anchoring in moving water and when letting out and retrieving the anchor line.
  • Always keep your anchor line free of tangles and away from the propeller.
  • Do not use the Anchor Ring where the loss of property or personal safety may be at risk.
1. Slip the Anchor Ring over the anchor line. Attach the shackle- buoy assembly. Be sure to snap the shackle through both eyes of the ring. Toss the buoy into the water allowing the ring to slide down the line. 2. Motor your boat forward at a 30º angle off of your anchor point taking care to keep the anchor line clear of the prop. Proceed forward – at roughly 5 knots – until the anchor is released from the bottom, then increase speed slight – 6 to 8 knots. Do not continue forward if the anchor does not break free. 3. The anchor line will slide through the ring as the buoy floats on the surface. Once the anchor has reached the surface, shift into neutral and pull in the slack anchor line and anchor. The anchor chain will counterbalance the anchor and hold the anchor at the surface.
