Rated 1 out of 5 by ad12 Waste of good money.
Don't breathe on this one hard. Had it less than two weeks on three fishing trips . The first slight gust of wind tore the shade supports right out of the pole. Very poorly made of abs plastic where sturdiness is needed. Not worth your money. Would love to add a picture but I threw the whole thing in the river.

We use our Charger Bass Boat for early Crappie fishing. Our 12' jig polls make it impossible to have anything overhead permanently installed. The anchor shade was ideal for us when summer swimming season comes since it truly converts our fishing boat to a pleasure boat with plenty of shade even for guests. Thanks for the inventive product that is durable and really works as advertised!

After seeing several boats on the water with the anchor shade, an umbrella like product that provides protection for center console boats. My boyfriend suggested we try one, the sun in the afternoons returning from the reefs off S. Florida coast can be brutal in the summer months. If its not the sun, then its usually a rain storm, so it really serves a dual purpose. The anchor shade fits perfect in the front of or 26' Dusky & provides protection to all passengers all the way home. This is a big relief for all of us. Since we all used to try to crowd everyone under the T-top for the ride home.

There is a pole that provides the up pressure and straps provide the down pressure. The adjustable strap has a plastic clip hook at one end that hooks to the corner of the cover and a D-ring at the other end, which simply slips onto the tip or existing boat cleat. You can also wrap the strap around a handrail so that the D-ring slips into the adjustable strap.
