Axis Shallow Water Anchor FAQs

How do shallow water anchors work?

The primary purpose of a shallow water anchor is to provide stability to a boat in water depths of up to seven feet. Instead of relying on traditional thrown or dropped anchors, it serves as a reliable substitute by effectively stopping and securing the boat in one spot in shallow waters. These anchors extend outward and downward from the back of your boat, reaching several feet underwater, and firmly hold the boat in place with a fiberglass anchor spike that pins it to the sea floor.

Capable of swiftly stopping boats up to 26 feet in just a matter of seconds, these anchors operate with minimal noise, making them perfect for fishing enthusiasts. However, they are also highly versatile and come in handy when anchoring at sandbars or shorelines. Operators have full control over the anchor's deployment and retrieval using a convenient remote control, which precisely determines the movement of the anchor pole.

How do I install my shallow water anchor?

Installing the Lewmar Axis shallow water anchor system is simple, requiring a flat surface on your transom that measures at least 6 inches in height by 6.25 inches in width. To complete the installation, you'll need marine sealant, wire cutters, heat shrink connectors and basic tools, as the anchor comes with the necessary mounting bracket and hardware.

Step one is to mount the anchor on your flat transom surface. Once the anchor is securely fastened, step two is to mount the RF module box inside your vessel and connect to 12V power. Lastly, step three is to connect the anchor to the RF module via the quick connect Deutsch plug.

For added convenience, we offer a quick-release mount, sold separately, that allows you to easily remove the anchor when trailering or switching to a different boat.

While we currently do not offer additional mount adapters, most aftermarket shallow water anchor mount adapters should provide a universal fit. If you have specific questions or need recommendations, please reach out to our dedicated customer service team for assistance.

How deep does a Lewmar Axis shallow water anchor pole go?

With the Lewmar Axis shallow water anchor, you can trust that your boat will remain securely held in waters up to seven feet.

What happens if the anchor spike breaks?

The spike has a lifetime warranty and is easily replaceable with basic tools. Simply contact Lippert Customer Service to order a new one.

Do I need one or two shallow water anchors?

For most situations, a single anchor is typically adequate. However, if your fishing style demands precise placement or if you frequently encounter challenging conditions like swift currents or high winds, opting for two shallow water anchors can further minimize your boat's movement and grant you complete control to position the bow precisely where you desire. With the installation of two anchors, you can conveniently control both using a single remote, simplifying your anchoring process and maximizing your maneuverability on the water.

What type of boat do I need for a shallow water anchor?

The versatile Lewmar Axis shallow water anchor is designed to effortlessly install on various boat styles, as long as there is a vertical mounting surface that exceeds the dimensions of 6" x 6.25". However, if you have a different type of application or require an adapter plate for installation, these can easily be obtained from a wide range of marine dealers or reputable online retailers.
