Re: anchoring distance

Yep, having too much is not an issue, sure enough, that guy in the anchorage before you is anal and 10-12 scope out! I've seen wind shifts that are sudden and strong (one in Fl pegged the anemometer at 71 mph! I was at the helm at 6 am in my underwear with the engine at maxxed rpm going nowhere...) When this happens boats do crazy things, some go one way, some go the other way, some go around a circle, some fish back and forth. It's a mess. Ditto for tide changes in the higher latttitudes where they are significant.
