Either way, the rule only works if you trust the lookout. In the case where the lookout is not experienced the point at danger is simpler but not that useful.
Us too. We tried the "point at the hazard" system, but what if there are hazards to both port and starboard?

Now we point at where to go. Usually the tightness of the required turn can easily be seen by the intensity of the pointing...

Yes our home port is in Anacortes. This is Glendora at Stuart Island a few weeks ago. Please let us know when you are next in the area.

Teri and Lee, Nice photo!

Great video, JT. Good story, too. Glad everything worked out fine in the end. We're looking forward to sharing an anchorage with Tenaya again someday and hope it's in the not-too-distant future. Big squeeze to Katie.

Re: How we almost sank our boat in Papua New Guinea: video

Thank you both for sharing so openly your adventures.

Many people don't realize that this often means taking a few anchoring risks to visit the more pristine islands and welcoming locals.

The same, if focussed on SCUBA diving, where the best dives are the worst anchorages.

I am sure you came away from that experience with an adjusted benefit/risk assessment plan as I have done when caught trying to anchor near a dream location.

Well done and I will follow your adventures as a fan.

Absolutely loved the video because it was REAL and did a great job of sharing the feelings and emotions of what it's like to go through boat drama.
Love to see more, so keep them coming!
