The Native Watercraft anchor trolley allows your anchor to be relocated from bow to stern or anywhere in between. This system is great for kayakers who like to fish on both rivers and lakes and who have the need for different anchoring positions. The clip and ring design of the Native Watercraft Anchor Trolley allows you to remove the clip from the ring and have an instant line to tow or secure your boat with (great for wading or tying off on shore).
Nice piece of kit for the fishing yak. Worth the price for the pulleys alone you couldnt get them at West Marine for much less. Includes well nut hardware; you may be able to use SS nuts/bolts instead if you can access the back side. Quality cord, plenty long. Replaced the plastic hook/ring with a SS carabiner, easier to snap anchor line into rather than threading it through. Comes with clear instructions.
The trolley system was somewhat easy to install and is made from quality material. My first concern was placing the system so that it didn't interfere with the adapt-a-track. Once installed, I noticed that the rope would ride-up into the well below the adapt-a-track. I fixed this by installing a plastic cable clamp (the type used to secure electrical cables) mid point to clamp the upper rope. One problem I had during install was the the supplied hardware came with two different sized nuts for some reason. I also installed a jam cleat on my kayak to secure the desired scope of anchor line - I can't figure out how it's suppose to work other wise. I can't say I get 100% positioning with the trolley - when the wind blows the yak will move to some degree and nothing can prevent that. Yet I don't regret the purchase. One note to Native - why not include suggested markings on the kayak as where accessories should be placed? And include the cheap cable clamp to keep the trolley rope from riding up. BTW - customer support from ACK is awesome!
Easy to install and I like the pulleys but the ring and clip leave a lot to be desired. I ended up buying a brass ring and brass clip to use. I didn't like the plastic ones that this set comes with. I also added a small piece of shock cord to mine to take up any slack and to have some give in the waves from power boat wakes or any wind chop. I made my own anchor trolley setup based off of this one for my other kayak and it came out just as good as this one for a lot less. So if you aren't sure what you'll need to make your own then this is a good system but if you feel confident in your skills to make your own then I would go that route. Three stars for the plastic pieces.
The Native Anchor Trolley system works perfectly on my Field and Stream Eagle Run12'. Installation was easy with both the paper instructions AND the video. Thanks a lot!!
