As much as we like Hobie’s anchor trolley kits for their versatility, SLH staff have opted for an alternative, somewhat simpler anchor kayak trolley system that works for a lot of our customers to. Especially popular on Compass models kayaks.
Unlike the Hobie anchor trolley kits, the SLH variant is designed to run half the length of the kayak (as opposed to full length) and will suit users who are only require to be anchored from the rear.
We use high quality Ronstan Cheek blocks (with s/steel ball bearings), 6mm bungee a single stainless steel snap clip and built the kit into a complete unit that just needs to be attached to the hull (stainless steel self tapping screws provided).
Installing this anchor trolley on the port side is generally preferable for most people as the anchor trolley will not compete with the paddle position. The beveled top side of the Compass is the best position for both pulley blocks.
