I'm totally paranoid about anchoring, but there's NO WAY I'm diving an anchor up here!


Hi David,

I do SCUBA and some free diving as well. I've checked the anchor at Hope Island once and at Roscoe Bay a couple of times. The chain disappears into the mud up to 20 feet or more from the anchor. Finding it without some sort of a buoy as suggested by Xort and Noel would be difficult.
