winds are present make sure to leave someone on the helm. Always preset your site if possible for a safe quick houseboat anchoring. The new bags are going to be lighter so it may get easier. The five star rating is because you will benefit in two ways. You are safe in high winds and the park rangers will not hassle you. See the pictures for the profile of our boat.
nal videos are excellent and everyone should watch them before they go out. We had a couple of windy nights, but the bags kept us very well anchored. The tight rope system was amazing and made tightening the ropes super easy each day. The tight rope system is a must. This is definitely an environmentally sound alternative to pinning and will keep Lake Powell beautiful for generations to come. We really enjoyed using the Beach Bags. It was a good way to sleep easy at night at Lake Powell
any other anchoring system we have tried in the past. As a bonus there new tight rope system absolutely blew us away. Both items are a real game changer for us and something that we will be using every year. Great job guys!
e chose in Last Chance Bay for the majority of our time had probably 20 holes and one pin stuck in its hole. Before we left we broke that pin off below the rock line. In the same area we picked up a couple of dozen golf balls. During our time on the water we are guessing at least 80% of the privately owned houseboats/boats we saw on our adventures were pinned. The NPS could have made a good deal of money if they sent patrols out to cite people. Brandon did a great job of explaing the system and demonstrating the system when he dropped it off. We were definitely surprised when he showed up in a car and pulled all of the equipment out of it. You need to get him a truck ... ... Thanks again for the product, lets hope more boaters opt for this solution. I would suggest you market to the shared ownership groups and the management companies. As the pinning issue becomes more publicized the owner groups and management companies will/should be held accountable to damage caused by their clients.
re easy to follow and I had my crew view the video before we started so that we were all on the same page. The more the better, but I feel that this system could easily be put into place with two people. We had some strong winds during our trip and the bags were on solid rock (sandstone). They did not move at all. I really appreciated having the system in place and the very best part of it all was the rope tightening system. That is the best way to tighten ropes that I have ever seen in my more than 40 years of Lake Powell trips. The people at Beach Bags were easy to work with and they delivered and picked up the system right on schedule. Overall, a great experience with a quality designed product. Highly recommend.
