Re: Mooring/Anchoring Techniques...

The Defeats-the-purpose moor: comes into a crowded anchorage where everyone is anchored bow-and-stern, in about 15-20ft. Drops bow anchor (doesn't set it), drifts back full ~300ft of line and drops stern anchor, letting out all ~300ft of line. Screams and yells at anybody who suggests that they snug up a bit on their rodes. Drifts all over the anchorage at night when the wind dies down. Everybody nearby puts out fenders or moves.
