    Anchor for your float

    Here I am 5 days before leaving and I am asking how do you anchor your floats in the water? We did buy some papasan floats and I forgot to ask how all of you anchor them?

    Anchor a float? What do you ladies have the queen Mary over there lol lol - All kidding aside don't think you need to just beach it. Doubt they make an anchor, you would probably have to make a homemade anchor with string and a rock lol Not worth the aggravation in my opinion. But good luck!

    I think some people just get a gallon jug and fill it with sand and you can hook onto it while in the water, but I thought someone may have another cleaver idea. Love the humor!!

    Thanks my friend. I know they have these but many people at Playa Linda anchor their floats while in the water and I was wondering if any of you do? I guess the answer is you do not. How's that for a silly question?
