Anchor trolley
« on: October 20, 2021, 07:23:55 PM »
Has anyone ever rigged an anchor trolley on a Mokai? Thinking about doing so. Looking for and problems or advice on doing it before I start. Thanks

I put trolleys on my boats many years ago and used them for a couple years.  Pretty cheap to make, as both parts and kits are available.  Not difficult to install either, but you will want to be skinny and limber to install pad eyes on the bow.  You may want to install a stainless bow hook while you are up under there.  I used plastic pad eyes in front and brass or stainless in the rear, since I used the rear pad eyes to also hold a tow rope. 

They worked OK, but I fish rivers and always anchoring at an angle to the current wasn't ideal.  Still water fishing would be better.  Trolleys are quick and easy to remove or move from side to side.  The rear pad eyes are still used for tow ropes and the fronts have been used for holding gear, so the effort has paid off.
