Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind

Best thing is to speak with local sailors on what anchors/techniques they use. You would surprised how much force it requires to pull a good properly set anchor out of mud when swinging 180 degrees.

The new gen anchors set really well in mud. Manson supreme, Mantus, Rocna.

My primary is a Manson supreme and I sleep very well at night. Have never needed to set a second anchor. I usually will find a trusted mooring in anything above 40 kts.
