Anchoring pictures of Motorboats!

Hello Fellow Gunkholers,

I am the co-author of a book about the exciting, contentious, never-ending subject of anchoring. This book is due out in just a few weeks, and we are making the final touches on it.
I am looking for any AMATEUR photographers out there who happen to have an interesting, beautiful or informative picture of their boat or any boat which remotely illustrates the topic of anchoring. We already have our photos but some of them, I feel could be improved. Have your pciture published!

The pictures and illustrations in the book will be in black and white,
simply beautiful anchoring photos, crowded or secluded anchorages, interesting snubber setups, intelligent or innovate deck or bow solutions,
photos of damaged ground tackle or damage due to dragging, heavy weather photos, vast mooring fields, and so forth, etc.

At this moment, I'm especially looking for
-a rusty chain pic
-a rollbar anchor, preferably an original Buegel

*I prefer not to discuss renumeration because I have no idea if or what the publisher would pay for a photo.* This can be discussed ONCE we see a potential image that we might want to work with.

It can be any format, digital, slide or paper. it can be in color, although the final book will be in black and white.

Your photos will be duly credited with name of photographer, and if applicable, name of vessel and potentially appropriate caption,

Thanks for your kind and postively involved interaction,

Will this new book be a English reprint (with new & improved pictures) of your earlier work “Besser Ankern” ?

It is a VERY beefed up, completely transformed version of Besser Ankern, of course. How different can two books on anchoring by the same authors be? Looking forward to you reading it!
