    Box Anchor

    I use a 30lb river anchor with 6ft of chain its the only thing I have found that doesn't pull when the wind constantly changes direction .I have the same issue with the narrow coves so I cant let out rode .I would love to ditch that set up because its such a pain pulling up how does that box anchor work with changing winds

    H2O 21 Sport - Anchor Size

    for the lake anchor i use a 35 lb river anchor some of the coves we like don't allow for a lot of rode and it gets pretty windy .We tried every other type of anchor i can imagine and this is the only one that has never pulled during lunch or nap time

    your anchor will depend on where you anchor and the type of bottom current tide ect

    Oil Change-The Extractor

    I would be concerned about the tube breaking off in the oil filter galley or getting stuck either way the engine is getting torn down .I have never had a problem using the dipstick tube which goes to the bottom of the pan that is what it was designed for

    Oil Change-The Extractor

    I run mine and let it sit for 20 min hook up the pump and get 95% out even with a drain plug you truly never get all the oil out .If you don't give the oil time to drain back into the pan you get less out
