Talk about favorite or hated suppliers, recommend good materials or sources, or anything of the same ilk. This is also a good place to suggest unique ideas and innovations you may have come up with.

Heavy duty Stern anchor bag

Post by lsheaf »

Hey guys

Does anyone have any recommendations on stern anchor bags? I’m looking for something heavy duty with good stitching. I’ve looked on defender.com but wasn’t overly impressed with what I found for the application.

I'd also be interested to hear what others have come up with. In the past I've made my own out of various synthetic heavy canvas with webbing around it and a drawstring at the end. A mesh material like Phifertex® Standard Vinyl Mesh Grey 54" Fabric is better to allow the wet rode to dry. People use it to make their own lee cloths and I assume it's strong enough to hold the nylon rode and some chain.
If you're not going to make your own then the large West Marine anchor rode bag Model # 9208265 is what I've used in recent years. It works good for my Jordan Series Drogue as well.
