Suitable for soft muddy and overgrown soils.
Use at least 3 to 4 x the depth of the anchor line under normal conditions, and 5 to 6 times with high waves and strong winds.
Make sure there is enough room for the boat to swing under changing circumstances.
Preferably choose an anchorage in the shelter. Do not lower the anchor until the boat slowly moves backwards to prevent the anchor line from becoming entangled. The anchor can dig itself in better if you reverse slowly.
Orient via a fixed point on the side or via a buoy, whether the anchor has caught and no longer scratches.
Use a waterproof marker to mark your anchor line every 5 meters so that you know how much anchor line you have outstanding.
Always mount the anchor line to the bow, never to the rear of the boat. It is sometimes difficult to release a buried anchor again, by sailing over the anchor it is often much easier.
For fast-moving boats, always make sure that the anchor is properly secured in the boat, a loose anchor can cause a lot of damage to the hull. Make sure you always have a sharp knife within reach, in order to get through an anchor line in an emergency. able to cut.
