Since no one else has responded, I''ll chime in here. If you are aground in 5 feet of water, are you saying that the anchor you drop/guide over the side will "glide" over 25 feet (ignoring the height of the freeboard on the scope formula)?

To me, that seems completely unbelievable, but I admit I have not researched the claims at all. I would be interested to hear more myself.
