So, spent a couple of months there and for anyone looking for the advice: it turns out to be a great anchorage, however, you want to anchor
in the grass, it's much better holding than the sand. Also, leave plenty of rode
, just in case. It's a big anchorage, so you have the space. Also, note that the dive boats don't typically slow down, so it's bumpy (I don't mind, but I hear people complain about it a lot.)
All of that being said, do keep an eye on other boats and storms. I had a guy, Gypsy
Moth, drag into me and tear up my bow pulpit, bow roller, and toe-rail.
It's the sailors that should deserve the reputation, not the anchorage.
(I frequently dove my anchor
and it never moved unless I picked it up)
