Re: The Perils of Rafting On
I've rafted up with as many as 17 boats (over 175k pounds) on a single anchor in 10 - 15 kts of wind - overnight.
Every third week for the past ten years or so our YC hosts a raft up somewhere on the Ches Bay, and just about every week end we go. I'm the anchor boat more often than not as I get there first.
This past summer's fun was three anchors, 6 boats - in Galesville during a 40 kt blow.
What matters is knowing how to do it, and doing it right.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
