Maybe Sarca is not big or known enough to gain agents over your way, it has competitors, and it`s a long way to ship refined steel product we usually export to China as iron ore.

Anchors, do we spend too much time thinking about them?

Just spent a night when the importance of our anchor was made evident. 40 plus kt winds, a large swell rapping around the point conflicting with the high and very fast chop in the anchorage. Water was flowing past Bay Pelican as if she were on plane. Charter boats were dragging everywhere and before sunset we watched a number of boats trying to anchor four or more times. The VHF was filled with social engagement cancellations as the cruisers decided to skip Friday night and stay home to watch their boats.

Sun has risen and things are quite now. We didn't move an inch. Will I admit my anchor is very important - yep.

Watching the sun rise over Rodney Bay St. Lucia.
