Choosing a Spot

Chapter 3 of 11 in the Online Book Anchoring Made Easy—Vol 2, Technique


It always amazes me how often you see boats motor into an anchorage, choose a spot, seemingly at random, and then immediately drop the anchor with no more ado. And it’s not really surprising how often the same boats go through the whole anchoring process again because they ended up too close to the shore or another boat.

Over the years Phyllis and I have developed a method of anchoring that means that we just about (no one is perfect) always anchor so that we don’t have to move and so that we can sleep soundly without worrying about a nasty crunch from swinging into shallow water or another boat.
