Re: How Much Chain for Anchoring on the ICW ?

I think a bahamian moor is better for reversing current anchorages on the ICW, as long as there aren't too many other boats close by who are swinging on one hook.

It sounds to me like you have plenty of tackle for the ICW. Enjoy the trip. Out of many dozens of nights anchored on the ICW, I can only think of two that got a little gnarly. In both situations, a bahamian moor in a reversing current location would have been (or was) the best solution.
