Mooring advice needed

Hi David,
The problem scott is facing is that his harbor has a gravel bottom. Gravel does not allow a suction to form so it''s easy to drag the weight or anchor accross the bottom. Iv''e seen this happen many times.In a bottom with deep gravel, you would need much more weight.
