Anchoring

Me? Im on a mooring. I havent moved an inch. My point, which seems totally lost, is that if one of going to anchor out it is good seamanship to: 1. if you have the room, you need to layout more scope than, say, if its daylight and you are awake. Anticipate changing in wind direction and strength. 2. Each boat shud have her own anchor out 3. Set an anchor alarm on your GPS. 4. Get up once in a while at night and check your position.
