Re: First overnight anchor ..

Just have the engine fired up ready to power if you need it. Have enough scope out and ride it out. Doesn't last long.

Re: Winching power for MOB

Your assuming the mob will have the ability to climb up. Don't plan on it. Check Life Sling. You'll need to rig a block and tackle to a halyard.
