Anchor Tests

Haven''t really sat down and packed it all into my Brain pan. But it seemed to be well conducted with several witnesses, including a Naval officer. From what I could gather,it just proved that you should have SEVERAL different types of anchors for different bottoms. The Danforth in mud surprised me,as I thought sand would be its forte. The plow anchors in mud seem to come up lacking, another surprise. I also was searching for more info on the Herreschoff and found that they did a total of FOUR anchor tests . If any one wants to check them out, just type in --1990 anchor test and 1994 san francisco Anchor test in your browser. These people covered a lot of territory. I think the results are genuine.
