Of course, this is probably due to the fact that the longer an anchor sits, the better seated it becomes... and derelict boats may have had their anchors set deeper than the "cruising" boats, as their anchors may have been set months previous...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
