Re: Anchoring with changing tides and wind

My most notable whoda thunkit happened in False Creek ,Vancouver .Mud bottom ,lots of scope half inch chain and 80 lb fisherman hook, days of wind change 180 degrees laid the scope back and forth over the anchor and tide dropped a loop over the cross bar and picked it all up on the rising tide. Coast guard found me by the Granville bridge alerted by a friendly passing tug and barge.We all had a good laugh when we got the tight ball of 300 lbs plus mud to the bow roller. I don't know what the moral of this is but Murphy lives.
