YUP! The Bodkin, thats where I had problems with my old Macgregor and a Danforth type, just glided along the top, before that and since then I anchored many many times in many different boats with no problems. I'm still looking for something a little more reliable. I have a tendancy to go overboard on things and yes, with all the money we spent on this boat I will probably be even worse.
