Emergency Anchor Setup

I sail a small boat, 21'', and came up with a way to get an anchor out off the bow without going forward. I ran a line (actually a double line loop) from the bow cleat through the bow chock and back along the starboard side and tied it to a stanchion base. All I have to do is bring up the anchor, untie the line from the stanchion, tie the anchor line on, and put it over the side.
