Whats an anchor remote?
Something that allows you to raise the anchor from the helm. It can be a switch on a long lead or now a days wireless remotes are more common.

In a situation like the one suffered by the OP starting the engine and using that with rudder to nudge away from the MOBO works but if you have to go up front to retrieve the anchor it makes things worse as you pendulum back. You need to keep manouvering clear as the anchor comes up.
