I'm sure it's sold at West Marine for $19.95 per bottle and highly recommended to increase your boating pleasure.

Did you photoshop that yourself or just create the label and stick it on a bottle of Windex?

I used to do that sort of stuff at work just to stir the s**t. Make bogus labels and stick them on spray cans.

It's for real, its just had the label modified. Grave diggers use this stuff (under a different name) for burials at sea!

It would be funny as heck to have a bottle of this onboard, to pull out when another boater starts whining about their anchor not setting or holding.

Too funny! I think i should make some of these bottles up and try and sell them to my first time boat buyers and explain that it is a liquid epoxy resin that magnetizes the surrounding substrate of the sea floor so as to mechanically attach the anchor to the sea bed in a more positive way and sell them for $49.99 per bottle and see how many folks buy them.
Ok..that would be cruel but still kinda funny to ponder.

Since I have a Bruce, my problem is not so much setting the anchor, it's releasing the anchor.

That's when I break this out. Works every time.

First, you'll have to convince them that they need to buy an anchor.

Woodsong, you could place it on the shelf next to the emergency bottles of dehydrated water. $5.99 a bottle, very light, no expiration date, and very easy to use! Great for ditch bags, I have 4 in mine. I know it was dumb to buy that many, I could have made do with just one as they are re-useable too!

What's really needed is something that will allow boaters to throw their anchors further!
