Hey... I resemble that remark, biggerseagar! I remember trying to anchor Endless Summer
at Priest Lake (Northern ID) a few Summers ago... in 150' of water late at night (no chain, just nylon rope)!---what a moron. Needless to say my credibility with the Admiral didn't increase that night and ever since then she doesn't trust my anchoring ability!!
But you should see me now, partially thanks to Larivee's instructional videos... but also helped by adding 30' of chain to the rode and using technology like purchasing the BlackBerry app MyAnchorWatch (www.myanchorwatch.com
)... of course there's nothing like practice and watching other people anchor successfully too.
