Re: Anchor Setting Woes

Its important to dance when finally done. Better than hand signals. You may choose a dance move of your own please don't use mine it may cause confusion.

More seriously ditto on the chill out before backing down. I copied my approach from someone else and have had fewer problems since. A light back down to "line everything up" under natural forces if available, then tidy up your boat. When you get the the beer stage of tidying up it also probably time to dig the anchor in a bit more.
