anchor riders

It's nice to have a windless for that extra load. We've also had a pair of pants, crab pots and cable. What comes up on yours?

Nothing exotic like your picture shows. I had about 50' of a 1" rusted cable come up one time. It took awhile with the boat hook to free it while the anchor was still in the water.

Another anchor. Got tangled up in it last year. We figured it was used for an abandoned mooring. The line on the left is holding it till we can slack off on our anchor chain. Fortunately, an other cruiser came by in his dinghy and helped untangle the mess.

This motorcycle and its accessory. But the accessory looked like it might be too expensive to maintain, so I did catch and release with it. Just before the Admiral saw it, thank the gods. And I'm not so sure that I would have known what to do with it had she seen it and still remain in the land of the living.

I hear you. The twins are costly to maintain.

A tree,
a Danforth about 15 lbs in good shape but with rotten rode
A 1/2" nylon rode with rusted chain end and no anchor. about 75' of that rode was still good but dirty, it cleaned up nice and I have it ready for use when needed. Fished up just off Hemmingway's Restaurant by the bridge at Pensacola Beach a nice spot to anchor and dinghy ashore for dinner nice beach and lots of restaurants. not so good in east wind

I'm calling shenanigans. The chrome would've been pitted.
