I was anchored at Rotto about 15 years ago after a race when a gail came thru. Same thing happened, boats dragging anchors all around us. The 32 footer I was on had some "modifications" to the bow in the form of SS angle welded in a V on deck. The 45 foot boat that drug down onto us, T-bone fashion, got a nice big hole punched in her side. Two more holes followed after we tried to fend her off only to have waves push her back again. The other boats crew never did even wake-up. (It had been a long night at the pub!)
