Kayak Anchor Trolley Systems

An Anchor Trolley is an essential item when anchoring a kayak. It allows you to shuttle the anchor line to the bow or stern of the kayak so that you can safely anchor with the kayak in line with the prevailing tide, chop, wind and swell conditions. You can use an anchor trolley system with a Quick-Release Anchor System or a Drogue / Drift Chute.
