Little elbow grease and we'll have an anchor.


The Anchor Kit is a craftable Item exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. It is found in the Seafaring Tab, requires two Boards, three Cut Stones and three Ropes to craft, and a Think Tank to prototype.

The Anchor Kit can be deployed on a Boat. The Anchor can then be lowered to prevent the Boat from drifting, or be raised to allow it to move again. The time it takes for the Anchor to rise depends on the depth of the Ocean: 2 seconds on Coastal Ocean and Brine Shoals, 6 seconds on Swell Ocean, 8 seconds in Rough Ocean and 10 seconds in Hazardous Ocean. The time it takes for it to lower is a third of the raising time.

If an Anchor is hammered, it will leave a boat leak in its place.

A thing to keep in mind is that the anchor will not prevent the boat from drifting away if the sails are still open. They need to be closed, otherwise the boat will still drift away slowly.

  • The Anchor Kit was introduced in the Turn of Tides update.
  • If the Anchor is on land it clinks against the ground.
