Most engineers that throw out all of this technical jargon and what not, at the end they provide a solution. I cannot argue his theory because I am an Electrical engineer, but I see he provides no alternative method of anchoring. Therefore, he sounds like a PHD student writning this in a library and probably has never been in 30 knot winds while at anchor. But, based on what he says, I'll need about 3000 feet of rode for my boat, whether it be chain or "steel bars". Not sure there is a windlass out there that can handle steel bars.
Anyway, the anchoring on 200 ft wide creeks would be over.
My analysis of this artice: He's an idiot!
BTW, My anchor works!
