Yak-Gear Deluxe Anchor Trolley Kit

Yak-Gear Deluxe Anchor Trolley Kit and ENO’s Double Deluxe, portable hammock for 2

The Deluxe Anchor Trolley will help you stop being a victim of changing winds and currents while fishing on anchor. Yak Gear’s product kit allows deployment of any anchor, drift chute or stake-out pole before judging the current and wind, while still remaining in a favorable fishing position.

Without a trolley, you are limited to anchoring to where you can reach, causing your boat to swing back and forth. Mounted off one gunwale of any paddle craft, the Deluxe Anchor Trolley kit uses a nylon pulley system to select a desirable position anywhere from bow to stern, then maintains the positioning through the use of a 25/16-inch mini zig-zag cleat.

The system uses Harken pulleys to seamlessly pass trolley rope from bow to stern without the rubbing of rope along slightly less smooth pad eyes. The mounted pulleys are raised off he boat enough to eliminate any unnecessary rubbing or scratching.

This complete kit comes with all stainless-steel installation hardware, installation instructions and rigging tips from Yak Gear. A waterproof, silicone and anchor is recommended, but not included. These features are included:

• Deluxe anchor trolley system with Harken pulleys, allows the bow of your vessel to turn in to the current for a smoother experience;

• Mini zig-zag cleat to maintain stable positioning;

• Installation instructions and hardware;

• Thirty feet of rope.

MSRP is $32.99. More info at yakgear.com.

ENO’s Double Deluxe, portable hammock for 2

The word “hamping” arose years ago when tent flies, zip-in bug nets and chill pads were paired with a hammock made from lightweight but strong parachute material. Eagle Nest Outfitters was one of the original manufacturers to capitalize on lightweight tents for hikers and backpackers. The idea soon caught on with paddlers, who were travelling blue trails instead of green ones.

ENO’s newest Double Deluxe hammock is 26 inches wider than the company’s popular DoubleNest hammock, providing ample space for two or more people to sway in comfort on a summer night. The Double Deluxe Hammock features 70D, high-tenacity breathable nylon taffeta and triple-interlocking stitching. It is designed to safely support a 400 pounds. Hammock suspension straps are sold separately.

Big enough for two and spacious for one, the Double Deluxe manages to stuff easily into a compression stuff sack, compacting down to the backpack-friendly size of a grapefruit.

The Double Deluxe also includes aluminum wire-gate carabiners and nautical grade line to quickly and safely secure it to trees, poles, boat masts, or even a solid wall.

The Double Deluxe is versatile, durable and compact making it ideal for hiking, camping, kayaking, traveling, back-yarding, or just relaxing.

MSRP is $50.93 to $84.95. More info at eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com.
