Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind

In 10 years of living on the hook the only time I have used the Bahamian anchoring technique is


wait for it


the Bahamas. Specifically off Nassau and in one ot two of the cuts like Farmers. I would always check to see what the other boats around me were doing before setting the two anchors at 180 degrees. If you have significant additional rode on one of the two anchors using the dink is not required.

Finally no thread on anchoring is complete without a mention of the ode to the credit card captains/. Watch for the man coiling the rope and the girl in the green bikini who contribute to the recovery in their own ways.
