Re: Boat Anchors
How big is the boat you want to anchor? small boats 12, 14 ft etc many use mushroom anchors, however, they don't hold on rocky bottoms so a danforth or grapple or similar should be used, for larger boats a danforth or plow. No matter which anchor you use you should use a chain between the anchor and the rode (rope) and you should have more rode than you think you will need, 7 times the water depth, 10 times in bad weather.
When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
