Yep, generally that works. In our case we were heading for the next raft of boats and didn't have time/room to let out more rode. There were lots of other boats having the same problem as us. In fact we were feeling kinda smug watching others having trouble for several hours until we broke loose. LOL Anchoring is definately a spectator sport.
