Best advice by far. Ask for help! I was in a busy anchorage on Georgian Bay (Great Lakes) last week and all of us typically popped our heads up like prairie dogs in the cockpit whenever somebody new wandered in and showed signs of wanting to drop an anchor right on our own. A little more communication and cooperation in any anchorage would be a big improvement.
BTW, anyone understand why some powerboats come into an anchorage, drop the hook, and then start hard reversing, ploughing up the bottom while husband and wife yell at each other, then retract said anchor and motor away? Is there some satanic manual out there advising this for getting the anchor to "set"?

It is better to be vaguely correct than specifically wrong.
