    Looks interesting FM. I'm just wondering how well this works on not so deep rivers with decent current. Anchors where I fish can weigh 50#s on average just to keep boat from moving. I may be able to get close to the buoy but lifting that anchor up the boat becomes a chore. What do u think?

    that system was designed for use on the columbia river where they are using 80# anchors so i think it will lift a 50#
