Re: Let's talk about anchors some more
Sounds like no anchor would do in those weeds. Some bottoms are just un-achorable, But with big gear you'll find you can get away with poor bottom conditions for a night here and there, if you need to duck in and get some rest, doubtful he would of chosen that anchorage if a blow was coming. I alway's swim dowm and push my flukes in by hand even if they've dug, alway's swim out and check my anchors visibly, it could be a clear warm water Caribbean thing. I want to know, I want to see whats happening down there, Maybe I found the only weed patch in a sea of hard sand, or there is some debris, or I god forbid dropped on a coral bed.
