RE: Best way to anchor for a hurricane?
This from my tugboat driving son, who is taking "shelter" up the North River (Hudson River) near Ossining, New York:
Me: Do you have a plan B? Anchorage getting crowded? Plenty of swing room? What have you got out for ground tackle?
Him: We're not really in an anchorage, first come, first serve. Someone drops a hook in my swing circle, I let them know. I literally have 1/4 mile of cable out, with a 2.5 ton anchor at the other end. There's no plan B, as we can't handle this thing in those winds...just drive around backwards like I've done before. We just can't drag far, or we'll end up on the beach.
