another solution ??

Thanks for all of the tips, we lost an anchor last summer in a powerboat.. no way that thing was coming up..
Afterward, someone told me about an "idea" where you have a decent sized buoy on a shackle of some sort, and if you get stuck you put the rode through the shackle and toss the buoy overboard and then do something.. That's the trouble, i can't remember what you do to get the anchor up.. and i'm having trouble visualizing what in the world the buoy would do..

Have any of y'all heard of this "idea", and if so, what's the last step ?? and does it work..
