I fear the simple explanation belies the complexity of the operation. What Giu has diagrammed is simply an anchor resetting device; one that aids the primary anchor resetting on the change of the tide. I, like many others, think that either a single anchor well set or a Bahama moor would be superior to the method shown, certainly in terms of ease of use and lack of fouling.
