Re: Looking for soft mud to test an anchor...
The trouble with measuring anchor holding is that you could theoretically have constant pull, even though you are dragging.
Imagine you are set and create a couple thousand pounds of pull, then the anchor starts to drag through the bottom, but doesn't come unset.
Seems like pull, plus GPS speed over ground would fix that. If the pull is there and the SOG is 0.0 you're not dragging.
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
