The Joy of Being Stuck

Being in the States, we’ve taken advantage by picking up a few needed items. One is this new 77-pound Rocna anchor (shown here on the bow sprit next to our older, smaller, rusty anchor). They’ve got a good reputation for picking in and holding well (though we did see one boat in Trini drag their Rocna), and the folks we know who have them swear by them. We don’t drag often, probably because if the anchoring is iffy, we use what’s called a Texas rig, one anchor chained in front of the other. It works great, but it’s hell to get deployed and pulled back up. So, here’s to staying in one place with one anchor.
