I agree that back creek is very narrow. And the holding is poor- soft squishy mud. I am not holding the boat that hit me at fault- these things do happen from time to time, and there is no blame to be had. I introduced the thread more to say that it IS important both to check all one's equipment on a regular basis ( which if I had done more faithfully I would have noticed the loose bolts on the drive saver) and that a cruising vessel, even coastal cruising, should carry a number of anchor systems on board. This is the first time I have had to deploy every anchor I had, and was thankful that I had as many as I did- I might even add another anchor tothe list!
THere is also the question of the city of annapolis taking the best anchorages and putting in mooring balls for $25 a night, that lie mostly unused, but that is a different thread!
