Broken anchor snubber
I’ve anchored in Cuttyhunk Harbor, Mass., hundreds of times over many different seasons. I like to joke that I just drop my hook in one of my old holes and I know all will be well no matter what.
Working the combinations
Having made 20 or so trips up and down the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) from Virginia to Florida I may be mistaken for an incorrigible ditch digger, but on almost every trip south I have combined offshore runs with ICW segments.
Benefits of a bow eye
Many, if not most, long-range power voyaging yachts utilize all-chain anchor rodes, or at a minimum a long length of chain backed up by nylon so that the majority of the time the boat is secured by nothing but chain.
All backed up?
Most voyagers depend on an array of digital assets, from the basics like email, the Internet and assorted important documents, to more nautical essentials like charts, weather information and cruising guides.
Offshore competence builders
One thing rarely written about in magazine articles and books on long-distance cruising and voyaging is the time problem. Relentlessly marching on, with or without us, time does not pause while we accumulate the right boats, skills, experience and crew to do the great things we read and dream about.
The well-supplied engine
When voyaging, your boat’s diesel engine needs a steady supply of oil and filters
Hurricane chart work
During and before hurricane season you will read and hear lots of information on what to do when a storm approaches, and how to escape and remain safe.
A true number two anchor
Want to start an instant argument in a waterfront bar? Just bring up anchors and anchoring and you’ll regret changing the topic from politics.
