Paddlers and fisherpeople, Read about using soft anchors and made two using old lead shot bags. Worked great on my yak, but deteriorated after a year. I need to find some durable sacks that will work to hold 4-5 pounds of lead shot or sand to use with my yak.
I think that enclosing whatever material I use for weight in a plastic bag might help the durability. Nothing I've found has seemed like the right solution yet.
All suggestion as to what and where to get some suitable bags is welcome. I might try Joe's leg weights idea, but I'm kinda a tightwad, and my old anchors worked so well!!
