Default Power pole anchor option...any sponsors selling them?

I have a 25' Panga that I need to put an anchoring system on. The bow is so high out of the water that a trolling motor with the anchoring feature would prob be a bust.
I typically fish smaller tidal creeks in 3-8' water and now that my boys are getting bigger, I'll be taking the larger skiff more often.

Any sponsors that sell them? I've searched the site with NO luck
TIA

Look at Rhodan trolling motors. You can get them in up to a 72" shaft.

Since you typically fish in water 3'-8', save yourself a $1000 and buy a wang anchor, available lengths up to 12'.

I use mine just about every trip on the boat, fishing similar depths of water as you do. I couldn't swallow the cost of installing a power pole. Primarily because if you don't have 2 then what's the point of having 1. Wind + Tide + 1 anchor = Sway.

Although I can imagine a situation wherein I might be advantaged by having a second Power Pole, I have never felt I needed one. If it were a frequent need I would just go the Wang route for my additional shallow water anchor need.
