Interesting that neither here nor there, anyone has mentioned that a "Bahamian Mooring" aka dropping two anchors in a "V" anticipating that one will break free and the other will be there to help keep the boat anchored, is called a BAHAMIAN MOORING for a reason. Presumably because it is used more often for some odd reason in, uh the BAHAMAS?
I had a firmly anchored boat start to sneak away while I took a really fast dingy trip ashore one day. "Hey, is that boat drifting?" and fortunately it was slower than I was. But I no longer trust ay anchor that I'm strong enough to lift, and I give mooring balls only slightly more faith. I'm glad I just got a scare out of the first time.
