I'm in constant amazement over all the stories I read and hear about dragging anchor in Block Island's GSP. We've been sailing there for the past 15 summers with our current and last boats, some years 2-3 times. Finding a mooring is always a challenge, so anchoring is a typical requirement.

Although we had to reset our Danforth during a gale with the last boat, not once have we dragged anchor there with our CQR and all chain - in any of BI's adverse conditions.
