Re: The Perils of Rafting On

I do raft at anchor:

When conditions are calm
Spreaders are staggered
Boat with largest anchor sets
Only one anchor to prevent fouling.
Lots of fenders mounted at rub rail / toe rail.
Breast lines and springs lines secured and can be released from either vessel

There are times we have to raft at docks as well.
