Emergency Anchor Setup

I have line tied to the anchor at whatever length I want (usually 60 feet for shallow water) and then tie this line to the line running back from the bow which would give me about 75 feet or so of line total. The idea is to have part of the anchor line already run to the cockpkit so I don''t have to go forward. I think this approach would also work with a sea anchor. I only used this line once last year.
