I think you are right. I seem to remember that he dropped the rode with a buoy attached. Not that rare an event; I have even done it. Could be a case of the anchor holding too well (well probably not), likely jammed under a rock. Those can be very hard to get out without a diver at times.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
