Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind
Don't know if this is a help for a sailboat on a river. I need to try someday but most likely never will.
We used to anchor like this fishing out on the ledge all the time. The beauty is this method floats the anchor up off the bottom making it easier to retrieve 600' of rode. I do not believe using a float to retrieve rode on a sailboat would work very well. You need some speed to move the float down the rode.
I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
