Your New First Mate
AnchorTAG monitors and reports movement of your anchor in the seabed, not how far your yacht has moved and not how far your anchor has dragged.
Every yachtsman knows from experience that GPS Anchor Alarm Apps and anchor drift monitors warn you after the fact and cannot be relied upon.
AnchorTAG is mounted at the anchor itself and reports pre-analysed movement data to a handheld display on deck so you can see when your anchor has set and how well it is lying in the seabed. When it senses anchor movement, anchor drag or orientation changes that indicate anchor pull-out is imminent or occurring AnchorTAG sets off alarms onboard and sends messages to your phone via GSM.
AnchorTAG is an intelligent and reliable safety product that gives you peace of mind at anchor. It is plug and play, no hull penetrations, no electrical or electronic refits and is affordable for all yacht owners.
AnchorTAG is a battery powered link mounted between your anchor and chain and reports the anchor state on your handheld TAG Monitor. Data is transferred to surface by the latest communication technology and updated every second while there is anchor movement or anchor drag, and every minute when there is not.
TAG Buoy is a small hand sized radio receiver/transmitter buoy that you deploy overboard prior to anchoring. It receives anchor movement data and relays it to your TAG Monitor and dispatches SMS warnings to your mobile. No thru hull fittings, no inside-hull fittings, simply throw it over board, tether it to the safety rail, and you are monitoring your anchor state immediately.
TAG Monitor is a handheld device that displays anchor state as well as battery condition for each component. Multiple TAG Monitors can be used (the bridge and foredeck for example) and two anchors can be tracked on each.
Mark is a 35-year oilfield professional, serial oilfield equipment inventor and a serious cruising sailor. Having grown tired of waking up every few hours at night to check if his anchor was still set, and having tried a multitude of useless GPS apps, Mark decided to create the ultimate solution to check how well the anchor was set, and so AnchorTAG was born. When he is not in the office he can be seen on his yacht…wife permitting.
