Re: Two dumb anchoring questions
There are very few spots left to anchor - maybe in North Sound.
You do not want to be in a marina - way too hot with little circulation in the boat.
I centre and lock the rudder /wheel. On a mooring ball as well.
To eye ball distances, think on boat lengths. If you have radar use the VRM to measure distances.
I like to be a rodes length from other boats. Not always possible.
