Hi Scott and Carlene,

Welcome to TF. Pretty friendly group here. Tell us some about your boat and cruising. We love pictures. I spent quite a bit is time around your area. I kept a boat at Orange Beach, and had a friend who lived in Daphne. He was one of the owners of WPMI channel 15.

Hatteras builds a great boat. However, as you cruise through the posts on TF you will find your anchor is too small, your anchor rode is too short, and both are the wrong kind.

Alas, the story of my life, too small and not long enough.

Thanks for the welcome, looking fwd to the forum and all the wisdom and experience on here.
