Re: How Does a Solo Handler Drop the Hook on a Large Sailboat ?

I push the hydraulic lever forward and the winch unwinds. Like everyone else I run up wind past, where I want the anchor to be, and usually, I fetch up right where I want her, I don't have a lot of other boats around where I anchor, in fact usually none, there are those pesky rocks that stick out that will make things interesting if you drag.
