Spade anchor comes up backwards

Hi Bruce,

You problem is only the result of a physical law.. :0)

Usualy, when you are raising your anchor, your boat is going forward..
Then, due to its shape, your anchor turn itself in the direction of the minimal effort.. the "tip" looking forward..

After breaking your anchor free, try to go slowly backward.. and you will see that your anchor wil then be on the right position..
