Re: My Brain is Anchored

It depends where your likely to be anchoring, if you know the area, ask around about what gear other people use then adapt that information for your needs.

I have two anchors because the heavy anchor is a pain in some areas and my light anchor is useless around coral and rubble bottoms.

Its a bit like antifouling, what works for locals may not be very useful in other areas.

I have learnt that light anchors like the Fortress with limited chain are outstanding and do outperform modern heay anchors with lots of chain when used with suitable bottoms.

The availability of different types of anchors and the performance of the different anchors convinces me there is not one single best anchor or tackle.
