That's like remembering to put a knot on a fishing hook.

It happens more often than I care to think about. BTW, if you have an all-chain rode... use a heavy nylon line to connect the rode to the boat, but leave the line long enough that it will exit the chain pipe so that if you have to cut it and leave the rode behind, you don't have to reach into the chain pipe or locker to do so. If the rode is under tension, as in a heavy weather situation, reaching into the chain pipe or chain locker is a good way to lose a hand.

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.

okay, i'll bight ..why does it make a difference what hemisphere? is this the toilet flushing thingy carried over to anchoring?

Yes, it’s the coriolis force. If a sudden gale hits the harbor you want to be on the windward side of the boat while adjusting the lines. That way you have a better chance of staying onboard if you get knocked down in the harbor.
Good Luck and all the best,

When you do set your Anchor. Be sure that the Bitter End of your Anchor Rode is secured to the boat. Or it will be all for naught on anchoring. LOL

Reminds me of the old charter boat tale they tell in the BVI's about the couple that called in on the fourth day of their charter saying:
"We've chartered for a week but they only gave us three anchors...can you bring us enough for the next four nights?" (G)

Thanks TrueBlue!

Thanks for the diagram and info on the snubber. That is exactly what I've been looking for. And to think it came from a fellow "True Blue" That's the name of our boat also!
