Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind

Here's a link to a common technique.

American Boating Association:.Anchoring in Changing Wind and Current

Personally, I am rarely 100% comfortable @ anchor. You can set anchor alarms with a GPS, and check how the boat swings through the tidal shift.

If you are anchored with other vessels, you should as Z says take note of their scope and swing

Good luck..
