Considering that I earned my living by working on everything from Sternwheelers to Ships. All the times that I've anchored, I've Never dove on an anchor.
Planning the anchoring evolution: a. where I want my anchor. b. the depth of the water and amount of rode I want out. c. my swing room. d. the approach to the anchorage. e. Including easing back on the anchor to ensure that it properly set. F. Then set the anchor watch to ensure that we are not dragging and no one else is dragging their anchor down on to us.
