Re: Crab Pots, friend or foe

We stopped in Glouster on our way back from Maine as well. Not nearly as many pots, but I vividly recall there being enough in and outside the harbor to require constant vivid watch.

Itís a good spot for a layover. We anchored just south of Ten Pound, as we were getting underway early the next morning. There was plenty of wake there. I donít think it has quite the charm of Maine, but I too recall getting away from the carpet of pots in ME to be a relief.

It’s a good spot for a layover. We anchored just south of Ten Pound, as we were getting underway early the next morning. There was plenty of wake there. I don’t think it has quite the charm of Maine, but I too recall getting away from the carpet of pots in ME to be a relief.
you should have gone all the way into the inner harbor to the charted anchorage, there's no lobster pots once past the no wake buoys and this is one of the few (maybe the only) inner harbor anchorage I've ever been that the lobster boats in the morning don't wake you awake

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!

Re: Crab Pots, friend or foe

Iím familiar with where you were. It was blowing 25kts, when we dropped the hook. The spot south of Ten Pound is like anchoring in glue. Iíve heard mixed reports on holding in there and these were conditions it really mattered. We arrived late and just wanted to make some dinner. I think I had a bogey man in my head that it might take a drop or two, not to mention, I was closer to the morning departure and had so much room, I put nearly 300 ft if chain out.

Next time, if conditions warrant, Iíll give the north anchorage a shot.
