Hmmm...how complete an idiot would you say you were then???
Yup, I know. (Another thing I have to address. She's got a Danforth on board, and I think it's properly-sized, but, from casual observation, I'm guessing there's just enough chain and line to make the anchor & rode meet the requirement for having a functional anchor on board--for racing purposes.) The other neat trick is the transducer's instructions say "30 feet or more" for setup. Well, I think about the only place on Lake St. Clair I'm likely to find 30' of depth is *cough* in the shipping channel. Only an idiot would anchor in a shipping channel and, while I may be a n00b, I ain't a (complete) idiot.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
