Re: Is snubber bridle any better than single-line snubber?

In the right wind conditions, some days our fat mid section IOR boat will sail more miles at anchor than we sailed to get there.

Re: Is snubber bridle any better than single-line snubber?

Always had an issue with the boat sailing on anchor and have worked to reduce it.

With high free board there is nothing that can be done there but if the dinghy is on the deck, take it off to reduce windage. I got a riding sail that I put up as soon as we are anchored which helps but I found if there was a single anchor line I still sailed. See pic.

I still sailed back and forth so I fashioned a double snubber that I use to the front side cleats which provides the best response to the back and forth sailing, also lowering the anchor rode point which also helps.

Shiva is fractional w/ high free board and will dance when as the winds pick up. We use a riding sail which really improves the yawing because the boat can behave like a weather vane and point to the wind.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Yes, forgot to mention this. My snubbers are run from the stbd and port chocks, not over the roller directly off the bow. I think this helps limit the possible yaw angle.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

A 2nd snubber run aft to mid cleat will help steady it.

Re: Is snubber bridle any better than single-line snubber?

We find that dragging buckets off the stern can dampen swinging quite a bit. Sometimes setting the rudder a little off to one side or another can make a big difference too. Lots of things can combine to make a boat swing at anchor. Sometimes it is a good idea to have several different tricks up your sleeve.

Not clear for me what do mean by "lowering the anchor rode point"
