I'm allergic to open, large expanse of water anchorages.

As someone else pointed out recently....usually wind is not the problem...it is surge /wave action.

It hampers everything where working in wind is a challenge....but nothing like trying to hold on and trying to do something....even surviving in the water in rough conditions is bad.

Unless I have a pretty bulletproof forecast, more than temporary anchoring and or the ability to get underway safely, keeps me in the most protected spots I can find.

True it may limit some of my cruising....but I had enough excitement in my youth to beat even remote danger, financial loss, or even aggravation out of me.
