Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

I suppose, if you can't power back against a huge anchor and drag it to bury the flukes, the wind isn't going to cause you to drag either. That seems unlikely, however.

But, of course, an anchor can be too large. Put a cruise ship anchor on a J-24 and you will sink it at the dock.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
