Re: Voyaging on $500 per month
I drop anchor from sail occasionally - usually when there is a good enough breeze to be able to rely on the force of the wind pushing the boat back to help set the anchor. There's something satisfying about sailing into an anchorage, picking may way through to the right spot, and then stopping the boat under sail to drop the hook (I do roll up the jib first, though).
Sailing off the hook is equally satisfying, in my opinion.
