Anchors and Anchoring

Gisle:

I'd like to see a thread started up that deals with anchors and anchoring: different anchor types and opinions of their capability, different types and lengths of chain, rhode, etc. Such a thread would be both informative and entertaining, in my estimation. Where on your site should it be located? (Or is there one already, and I have missed it?

There have been several good discussions on 'anchors' & 'anchoring'.

“Tuning an Anchor Rode” from Al’s Software Sailing Page
is an EXCELLENT tutorial, describing (in detail) the forces that act upon a boat and it’s anchoring system. The author focuses on the rode behavior, with special emphasis on a generally underestimated problem: the dynamic behavior of various types of rode under wind gusts, and provides a synthetic spreadsheet to approximately size the anchor and the rode, given the anchorage conditions. He discusses the static & dynamic characteristics of chain, rope, & combination rodes, as well as yaw etc.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this website.
