Slipping at Anchor

After all this discussion I have to admit to an error on my part.

It''s not a Force it is a Fortress anchor.

i usually back down hard under power to set the anchor. i carry different types of anchors aboard a danforth, and a plow. when one will not work, the other usually will. a northill ia also an excellent anchor. if staying overnight, i always set an additional anchor. i pride myself on my anchoring. practice it everytime you can one can never get perfect at it, i always use a tripline too. in bost hbr there are many old cables and ghost lobster trawls lost on the bottom . folks lose too many anchors this way. the local divers comb the cables all the time. if i want an anchor i cant afford, i put in an order with a diver friend that will find one eventually, and for an affordable price. i also have found over the yrs how to get free fenders. if a powerboat blasts by me with all his fenders hanging and bouncing over the sides, i change course and follow him. the enevitable will happen. i've found 45 fenders over the yrs, usually the better quality
