Well I’m back, but sorry to say I have no pictures to show as promised for this trip using the beach setup. The creek was 11’ over its norm due to that Christmas day storm so all the sand bars were covered. But I can show the first testing of it at the local beach. The 7’ aluminum poles are from an old free standing sun shade thing.
The stakes are 1” X 1/8” aluminum angle I got from Lows hardware. They come as a 3’ piece so I cut them in half and put the cable in at 6” from the bottom.
The hole at the top end is for running some cordage thru so you can stand up to pull it out of the sand. The Velcro just keeps things neat.
The cables are 3/32” X 15’. I put out 2 at each end at approximately 23* off center line.
“DISCLAIMER” setup has only been tested to 165 lb.
My ego said, SURE you can.
Half way in my body said OH NO YOU CAN'T
