The problem with the Bahamian moor is that if the wind/current does circles you twist the anchor rhodes around each other making recovery very difficult. If you are going to stay Bahamian moored for a long time it would be advisable to put a trip line on one of the anchors so you can get it up after dropping all the rhode.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
