Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind

My link was really meant to be a generic response to the question. (one technique)

Anchoring methods and anchor types/size should be specific to the waters and conditions, So I am happy to defer and refer the OP to those who sail in his waters.

I should note that I took the danforth that came with my boat off the bow and replaced it with a Spade. I stowed the danforth and use it as a spare. I also have a smaller one at the stern that I can deploy quickly in an emergency. ( engine dies in a bad spot)
