Re: Anchor light
I use an anchor ball, but probably for an entirely different reason. It's a float connected to 30 feet of line that allows me to pull the anchor out of a snag backwards. Also, in a congested area, it tells everyone else where my anchor is sitting. Just saves a bit of grief.
Gary - up here in the PNW, anchor floats / trip lines are frowned upon as they restrict the amount of space in anchorage. They actually will cause grief.
