Our anchors and gear are quite capable. We can't bring the space to deploy them along with us. The next trip we make to the Westerd may be inland to Lake Superior. Who needs a crowded anchorage full of ignorant, resentful boaters?

Chesapeake has virtually no moorings except a few small creeks. Plenty of places to anchor all over the place with many small creeks and coves. It's unlike our northern neighbors in that regard.
