RE: Sorry, but I have an anchoring question...

In a really tight anchorage that slip system is great.

Since anyone that will be in there with you will be on 2 anchors knowing actually where the anchors (nor 30 ft away cause someone was lazy)ARE is a great help.

Esp anchoring in a narrow channel, where all are nose to tail like an elephant heard.

WE use the sounding lead as a weight , always handy since its right out with the anchor.

A bowline attaches the weight to the anchor , so it can quickly be switched if a burying (CQR) is needed rather than a Danforth or Bruce.
