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.
