Re: Anchoring single handed whilst hove to?

So the OP with a 26 ft sailboat asks about anchoring technique on a heave to situation. He carries his anchor in the stern.

As typical some of the responses have nothing to do with his situation, but describe your own personal anchoring techniques. I do t think thatís really relevant and contributes to thread drift.

Try and consider what he is dealing with. He has no electric windlass So using that in your response isnít relevant. He has a small foredeck and narrow gunnels so running to the bow isnít relevant. He isnít picking up a mooring, he is anchoring.

JeffH has described perfectly a technique which the OP could use.
