pirate Re: Anchoring etiquette

Gotta chuckle about all this..
I anchor behind boats of a similar size and configuration to me.. if I'm on a 30ftr I anchor behind similar size boats and not behind 40+ft cats or 45+ft Mono's..
There's more to anchoring than etiquette, there's common sense.. only idiots go for the prime spots regardless of what's around them.
One of the reasons I circle an anchorage, feel the current/wind and to see how the rodes are lying.

Yes mate, but you have truckloads of both experience and commonsense, apparently a somewhat rare combination in many places.

Essential practice in my view. Also to survey the bottom and look for unevenness or obstructions.
