I know who you are, condolences, my dear.
Okay, what usually happens with our AIS
based anchor alarm
is that the swinging circle is somewhat too small. We have learned to enlarge it, with practice, not a lot, but enough to be realistic.
I don't know if this is true on your boat
, but our AIS GPS
is about 35 feet aft of the anchor roller, and this confounds its 'thinking."
How we are adjusting for this is when we are anchoring
, just as Jim (sorry) goes forward to drop the anchor, I push the "anchor" button, and the boat
is already in reverse, because he did that before he went forward. If you're doing it alone, put the engines in reverse, punch the button, and then release the anchor. Remember how much rode
you have out, and set the alarm
