Default Stake out pole

A while back someone posted a pole from Lowes that could be used as a stake out pole for I think 10 bucks. Not sure where I seen the post, here or another forum. Hoping someone would remember, I have looked all over. I just wanted to look at one, but didn't know what section at lowes it was in.

I'm not sure about the lowes model but you can also make them very easily by using a length of bamboo or calcutta reed with an angle cut on one end to ease sticking in the mud or sand. Thats what I have and it has worked great. Best part is that if you do break it somehow you just cut another section of bamboo.

Many are getting ready to roll their eyes and/or laugh at me but...



I use a 6' long piece of 1" PVC pipe w/ a PVC T on the end for leverage (kinda makes a handle). The end is cut at a 45 degree angle to help stick it in the bottom. I use a 4' long piece of dock line to tie it off to either the bow or stern cleat.



It holds my 17' skiff w/ no problem.



It works good on a muddy bottom but in the sound w/ the thick seagrass it is difficult to get it to stick sometimes - but, I hardly anchor there.



I've been using it for 2 years or so w/ no problem. I spent like $6 or so on it (I already had the PVC glue).

No laughing here. Anything that will work for less money is just fine in my book

Its a green land scape stick made of aluminum with a plastic green sheeth. Its for elevating potted flowers. Its about 6$ but you need to glue a pvc t conector for a handle to push in the grass/mud. It has a pointed end too.
