All of those things happen to cruisers sooner or later. He seemed to be overcoming them pretty well and was at least well enought prepared to have a second anchor of the correct size for the boat he had.

I guess I just have a soft spot for people who get out and do things even if they don't/can't cover all the bases before going for it.

Now some people take that to the extreme and do obviously stupid things. Those people I don't have a soft spot for.

As to who fits into which category, well that's a bit of a moving target for me I guess. As I would guess it is for many people unless they have a hard core black and white type mentality. And they feel you should never do anything until you have all contingencies covered.
