I agree. When you anchor almost 365 days a year like I and Capt.aaron do it is depressing the number of boats you see drag. It's a lot.
I don't think many crusing sailors relize how common a problem this is, probably because they have perhaps a lot of sailing experience, but much of this has been getting back to marina when bad weather is forcast.

Many crusing boats you benifit enormously by going with larger and better quality gear.
