Re: Anchoring single handed whilst hove to?

Small boats Capta, so they have tiny foredecks. Pretty tricky to sail these little boats from out on the bow. Heaving to gives you a more stable platform to work from.

Like the OP, I heave to even just to start my outboard.

I agree, it might not make sense on a bigger boat.

Heres a look at my foredeck. About 18 inches across with no life lines. No anchor locker either. My anchor is stored in a cockpit locker.
