Knot to create bridle on the anchor rode
Whenever I anchor I usually tie anchor line (rope) on one cleat, and then use rolling hitch to tie another line to it in front of the bow and take the load on the other cleat - creating a kind of a bridle. However, I always wondered if there is a better knot than rolling hitch - both in terms of holding power, and to avoid damaging the anchor rode.
Or, what else can be done to tie the boat on both sides equally?
