Anchor retrieve clip -Ezy lift Clip and buoy
« on: Fri 4 Jun 13:28 2010 »
Does any body use or have used an "Ezy lift anchor Clip and Buoy"
Have had a shocker with back probs over last few months which has stopped me getting out as often as i would like in the rig. Years ago when i had much larger rig i bought an ezy lift anchor clip and float (14ml) Its STILL in my shed I have never used it.  I have 5.3 meter rig with a cabin forward. walk through not too bad but had a real test getting my anchor up when out at Harries a few weeks back that didn't do the back much good. Getting older but NOT TOO OLD.  Bergereel does the hard yakka for me when he and i are out for a fish. Trying to get a billy lid to help with the anchor or winch for that matter can be a challenge. lol
Any feedback on using the clip is appreciated.
Is it worth setting it up ?
Any tips on how to attach it simply ?
Any photos would be superb.

Thanks

Gday mate.
Dont know what they are called,but is this what ya talking about.I have a 5.2mtr and I use it in water over 15 mtrs deep or if the current is running.I got a bad back also so,and it definetly helps.
Easy to use,just make sure ya clip it on the right way,so it slides one way down the rope.It will only run one way.Cheers

sheriff,if you have a look on coastwatch in the boating tab,there is a video of a side retrieval setup with just a float and ring,which runs up and down your anchor line.very easy setup,i use this method myself and find it very easy to use.you just use the boat to float the anchor off the bottom.hope this helps.

Geeze flotsam your on fire getting back to him that quick.  I also have one but have never used it.  took it with me once though :-).  I really should use it to give the hands a break from dragging the anchor up all the time.

Sheriff if you ever need me to attach yours to the rope I'd be happy to be your deckie for a day :)

    what some of our fellow nugget bloggers refer to as the Southside..nothing like the friendly obsessive compulsive competition between the South and North.

    Rosco, how do the ring ones go once the anchor is up the top?  Do they tend to let the anchor drop back down to the bottom? Or is the ring big enough to take the chain and lock it in?
    I have the same as Flotsam's and haven't used it but I thought the idea of it was to hold the rope etc so the anchor couldn't slip back down??

    Hi Shane,

    I started off with one of the clip types Flotsom put up the photo of but lost it and the ball when my reef anchor fouled on something and would not release. What happens the ball takes the clip down the rope and grips , which it is supposed to do but i ended up having to cut my anchor line leaving the clip and ball somewhere between the boat and the bottom never to be seen again.
    The photo i have attached is my set up and if you drive the vessel far enough the anchor hangs in the ring and just floats under the ball. If you cant free the anchor and you need to cut the line which happens ocassionaly the ring and float just float to the surface.

    Cheers,

    Ross
