Anchor Line Reel

Marcus Parker

I run a flats boat, and any extra room I can make for storage is beneficial. To maximize space, I use an outdoor extension-cord reel for my anchor line. It holds 100 feet of 3⁄8-inch nylon rope on the reel, and I stow another 100 feet, which can be added if needed, under the front deck. This keeps things neat and makes anchoring and line retrieval much easier. The reel costs $8 to $10, and the only change I make is switching out the reel knob bolt to a stainless-steel one.
