Sand stake holder

I am looking for ideas. A buddy of mine has a 6"x24" PVC pipe with caps tied to his frame to hold the stake and the hammer. I like that idea, but pricing all the parts, it comes up to about 60 bucks for the PVC cylinder. So I am looking for ideas on what people use to store their sand stakes to have easy access to it.

PS: I'd like to keep it out of the dry box, for easier access.

Thanks,
Alex

We put ours in a drop bag, and perhaps a "mini skirt" is also an option. However the mini skirt seems a bit more sketchy since in a flip it could flip around, and perhaps be a bit of a head or other body part banger. Mini skirt is made by clavey (and industrious sewist boaters) if you're not familiar.

PVC might be cheapest from a home-reuse center, if you have one, that length might be an easy to find scrap. Or try some plumbers, see if they'll let you poke around in their bone yard.

I keep my raft's sand stake in a length of pvc pipe and including straps the whole deal was around ten bucks.

all I used was a few feet of pvc just large enough for the stuff to slide down into.

How wide is your pvc pipe? My stake will fit into 4" pipe, but not the hammer. Also, don't you use the caps on the ends? Those are like 15 bucks a piece.

I also use PVC to hold it, probably 3 inch diameter? Not sure how much it was but it wasn't 60......

I also have just strapped to to my yoke on the cat frame, easy to get to and secure.

Do not trust your boat to a sand stake. Stay with your boat or someone else to hold boat. 200 foot poly. rope 13.00$. if you most leave and tie it off. If I am thinking, what you are talking about.

Always tie your boat off, or do not leave.

Jasus! Where did he buy his PVC? Neiman-Marcus?

I made a quite similar thinwall PVC tube for sand stakes, with caps, for about ten bucks. Hung it on the front crossbar with long velcro straps (about $3.50 more).

It does what it 'sposed to do.

Do not trust sand implacement. Do not trust vegetative extrusion.

Overnight raft is most advisory to a knotting around the penis, therefore any development is waking the person. Please yes?
