Re: Anchors Away...
We use the tags in the anchor rode so we know we have enough scope (or occasionally know we don't...). Makes it nice and easy.
The time to set the anchor alarm is when we drop the anchor since we are going to circle around that spot as the tide comes and goes. To set my anchor alarm on the gps though requires too many menu selections and I am always busy picking the spot to drop the anchor and forget to do it until it is all over.
