a lonely place....

He trusts that anchor tackle....

YouTube - windy anchorage

....but it will be lonely, and daunting, when the light fails.

I have never had to cope with 70 kt when at anchor, or even near so.

The anchor is the Supreme...

Manson Supreme Anchor - TheMainSail Product news

...and he has confidence in it.

Here he is again, this time with a drogue out....

YouTube - The drogue saves the day

Please don't confuse the Mainsail product news with our esteemed colleague Maine Sail. AFAIK, the two are not related or connected in any way.

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.

It looks a decent anchor, if it can hold in that it is doing well.

When in Maine, put a main sail up first, I suppose.

Apparently the anchor is also known as a Rocna, or something like that.
It's all jolly confusing.
