I don't think I'd want to be in a tinny if any thunderstorms were nearby. :lol:juggernot said:I don't think I'd want to use one on a tinny if any thunderstorms were nearby.

The prices from mgs4u.com wouldn't be so bad if they didn't gouge so bad on shipping. Of course maybe it's the cost of shipping long items and it just seems high but I have my doubts.
yep all true,,, tried using 3/4'' conduit,,,, biggest problem very noisy banging up aginst the tin boat and banging around inside the boat, rebar going to have rust stains in the boat also not going to keep paint on them very easy,,,RiverBottomOutdoors said:No spring in rebar. Too heavy and won't adsorb shock. Too light and probably bend.
I found out about those stakes being used by nurseries a couple of years ago when I first visited the idea of a shallow water anchor. I called all the large local nurseries and they didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I was very disappointed to learn that.johnnybassboat said:I have built many shallow water anchors and brackets for both me and some of my friends. If I was you I would check a few local farm supply stores or landscaping stores and try to find some 8 foot long 3/4" diameter fiberglass tree stakes. These are used to support small trees when first planted. They are solid fiberglass poles. You can sharpen one end and make a t-handle for the other end. I also have some 12 footers, but they are harder to store and usually stick up above the gunnel more than I like. I have a couple stores that sell these stakes in my area, so it may be worth checking in your area to see if anyone stocks them or can get them for you.
Now that is what I've been looking for. A reasonable price on the pole and the shipping. I can fashion my own handle and I can sharpen one end a little. Thanks for the link.schukster said:https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003405FVW/ref=aw_wl_ov_dp_1_6?colid=261O9Y8LMJNAT&coliid=I21XM5MZQ0E3GC
Here's a fiber glass 3\4 8ft rod I have been looking at on amazon
