    All you need is T posts and a sledge hammer and even if you have nothing to anchor to. Got my self out of some nasty spots

    I keep my winch in a milk crate with a length of chain bolted onto the bottom and a shackle. If I need to use it I can attach it to the bow eye, or the rear handles depending on which way I want to pull the boat out

    Whatever you get replace the steel cable with a synthetic rope so you don't have to worry about a rusted out cable also pick yourself up a 4 foot earth anchor you can screw into the ground if there no trees etc available

    There are always anchors...sometimes you just have to create them. You can tie to something that you place. A long metal fence picket, driven deep at a 45 deg angle will hold.

    Getting the picket back out...good luck.

    Sweat involved.
