The vegetarian moor

The Vegetarian Moor
Drop the hook in weedy bottom, let out scope, throttle up to all of 800 rpm and 'set' the anchor. Around 10pm, when the rainstorm and high winds come up, you'll be dragging a big ball of vegetation across the anchorage. Just pray you are woken up by the shouts from the worlds finest cruiser, anchored nearby, who is maintaining an anchor watch...just before you are about to drag onto the rocks.
