Anchor shade,

Anybody use one? Good, bad? How stable are they? Are they a pain to use? Would you buy one again?

Thanks
Russ

I have one and love it! They look great and you can have a drunk buddy sleep on it and bend the $hit out of it and it still works. Just don't put it away wet, I did this after a rainstorm and forgot about it and it discolored a bit!!

I'm thinking maybe it's time for a new one!!!

Do a search on this. I have an Anchor Shade, and it works great. However, there is a new product out folks are touting as better and 1/2 the price, with the same design.

They work great and can be used on shore also. I have used mine on shore many times and on the boat every time out.

I love ours. Easy to use and good for the dock as well as the boat. The support pole in the middle makes it a little hard to get around the boat, but wouldn't be out on the lake without it. This fair Irish skin burns pretty quick.

Considered the umbrella but went for a bimini instead because of the pole in the middle AND with a bimini you can still cruise , say under 40 mph in the shade if you so desire. The ones I saw weren't priced much different than an over the counter bimini.
