We were in a similar situation that same day on our trip up to Long Island. We had just pulled in Barnget Inet NJ and anchored. Our annememoter showe staedy 40 knotss with guists to 60. I kept our engine running but our ROCNA held fast. Tragic, my heart is out to the family. We are now out in Sag Harbor
