Re: Anchor Setting Woes

It could just be that you have an undersized anchor, there's a lot of truth to the old saying that your anchor isn't big enough until people start telling you it's too big:-)) My wife and I have worked out a set of very simple hand signals for anchoring (forward, back, neutral, increase/decrease rpm, left/right, depth?), we rarely need to say a word.
