That anchor sounds imposible to me. Anchors don''t glide through the water if they are weighted sufficiently to actually grab the bottom.

Since no one else has responded, I''ll chime in here. If you are aground in 5 feet of water, are you saying that the anchor you drop/guide over the side will "glide" over 25 feet (ignoring the height of the freeboard on the scope formula)?

To me, that seems completely unbelievable, but I admit I have not researched the claims at all. I would be interested to hear more myself.

Is it possible for an anchor to glide out from where its dropped in for a 5-1 scope? SAIL magazine''s New Gear section said that the Flook Anchor, an 11-pound pantograph (?) anchor does this, making it possible to set a second anchor or to kedge without moving the boat or launching the dinghy or walking it out, for that matter, I suppose. Its a bit pricey at $94, but sounds great, especially for those times when I run aground and can''t wait for the turn of the tide. Anyone have any experience with this?
