I own a 17ft tunnel skiff. It's weight with 2 passengers is 1245lbs and I want to add 2 micro anchors from power pole to it. I would go with two sportsmans power poles but weight and price are my main concern. I fish inshore almost exclusively now. I also like the ability to move them from my skiff to jon or kayak as needed.

I see some guys mount one to the trolling motor mount and one off the transom. I see others mount both to the transom.

Question which mounting prefrence is superior?

Do you think two polls off the transom would hold me from swiveling in a cross wind?

Are they good at holding onto the bottom in the waves?
