Happy Hooking : The Art of Anchoring
By Alex and Daria Blackwell
2nd Edition 2011
How to find a combination of tackle and technique best suited for your circumstances when anchoring your vessel. By outlining how different anchors work, the pluses and minuses of different adjunctive pieces of equipment, the current thinking about how to deploy this equipment, and how to select an anchorage, we hope you will be armed with enough information to make some informed decisions about what might work best for you. If you could take only one piece of advice from these pages with you on your travels, perhaps you will remember what Tommy Moran, an old salt in the West of Ireland, advised time and again: “Anchor as though you plan to stay for weeks, even if you intend to leave in an hour.” Happy Hooking!
