Hey this is an instructable I am making about how to make an anchor trolley, for under five dollars. An anchor trolley is what allows you to basically tie off your anchor line at the front or back of your kayak. This I would say is for one of those times when the wind is blowing hypothetically south, and you want your back to the south ( to the wind ). So you "attach" ( You'll understand later ) your anchor line to the back of the kayak. The wind blows your kayak, and your back is exactly to the south. Almost all of the parts I used were purchased at my local farm and fleet store, although you could most defiantly get them somewhere else. Probably should have mentioned this before, but this is by first instructable so if I do something or don't, that's the reason.
Step 1: What You'll Need
1. 50 Feet of Marine rope or para-cord. (I bought marine rope for 3.99 at farm and fleet)
2. Two small pulley's. (.39 cents a piece at farm and fleet, I got the ones without the swivel)
3. 5 inches of copper piping. (You could use steel piping or just tie a knot)
1. A pliers to crimp the tubing or piping.
2. A lighter or matches for burning ends of rope
3. A Hack saw to cup the tubing or piping
Step 2: Cut your pipe
First get that 5'' of pipe and cut it into, two, 3/4''-1'' sections.
Step 3: Preparing The Rope
Now that you have your two sections of pipe, you are ready to prepare the rope. First cut two sections of rope about a foot long. Then use a lighter (or some matches, your preference), to melt the ends of the rope to prevent fraying.
Step 4: Installing the Pullys
Take one of the pieces of rope and put it through the hole in one of the pullys. Then take the rope and put it through the hole at the front of your kayak. This is the same hole that the handle rope goes through. Then repeat this step at the other end.
