Anchor your boat with confidence

“The Complete Anchoring Handbook” takes the anxiety out of anchoring, using straightforward language and clear, simple illustrations. This comprehensive guide explains the physical forces acting on the boat, anchor, and sea bottom and recommends new methods for improved holding power.

Thanks for your clever question.. I don't believe the book is biased at all, as my co-authors and the editor, would never allow me to do that.. and next point, if I will always remain the designer of several specific anchors, wich could means that I have some knowledge on the subject.. But, I have sold the Spade company and I don't have anymore commercial, marketing or financial interest with any anchor manufacturer..
