Re: Anchor Setting Woes
Sorry for the slight drift.
we tried headsets and we both hated them - too much emotion. Went back to hand signals. Here's what we use:
Hand pointing up - idle forward
Hand pointing up and going in circles - add a little throttle in forward
Hand sticking out to side - neutral
Hand point down - reverse
hand pointing down and going in circles - add a little throttle in reverse
Hand pointing 45 deg either way - steer that way (picking up a mooring, hoisting the anchor, etc)
Would love others' suggestions for improvement.
