A modern, authoritative anchoring guide for sailors and powerboaters A boat swinging safely at anchor can mark the relaxing conclusion to a great day of boating or the successful completion of an essential emergency measure, while failure to anchor properly can be frustrating, inconvenient, or downright dangerous. The Complete Anchoring Handbook is your path to mastering this indispensable seamanship skill. Based on original engineering analysis--and with contributions from such international anchoring experts as Alain Fraysse and Chuck Hawley--The Complete Anchoring Handbook emphasizes the proven best gear and methods for anchoring safely in any situation with any boat, sail or power. Here’s everything you need to know, from the basics to the most advanced techniques. Poiraud and company describe: The physical forces acting on a boat, its ground tackle, and the sea bottom Why the new generation of roll-stable anchors (including the Spade, Rocna, Manson Supreme, and others) is proving superior to traditional favorites How to select and size anchors and ground-tackle components How to connect those components without introducing weak points in your ground-tackle system

The Complete Book of Anchoring and Mooring

The Complete Book of Anchoring and Mooring

The Complete Book addresses anchoring systems, techniques, and permanent moorings for boats from 12 to 80 feet in length. It covers monohulls, multihulls, light displacement sailboats, cruisers, sportfishers, passagemakers, and workboats. In short, it is for all recreational and working boats in this size range. The book deals not only with anchor behavior, but also with the rode assembly, riding stoppers, and the human factors. What formerly was thought of as strength through size (heavy anchors and large rodes) has been refined to decrease weight, lighten loads on the boat, and reduce difficulty in handling. Utilizing a systems approach with respect to equipment and techniques and analytical methods for loads, Earl R. Hinz has made a number of contributions to the state of the art. Among them are bow anchor roller design, chain locker and navel pipe design, elastic anchoring techniques, tandem anchor systems design, and designs for permanent moorings. Sections on ground tackle selection, tandem anchoring techniques, anchoring in coral, and improving hurricane moorings have been revised. Most of these designs and techniques are clearly illustrated in the schematic drawings by Richard R. Rhodes. The latest information on electric windlass troubleshooting, new anchor designs, anchor test data, use of screw anchors for more secure moorings, design of moorings for coral seabeds, and anchoring jurisdictional conflicts makes this second edition a state-of-the-art source book for the boating world.

Happy Hooking - The Art of Anchoring is a very readable book on boat anchoring. It is loaded with valuable information on anchoring tackle, anchoring technique, tying up and rafting, anchoring etiquette, as well as the occasional anecdote - simply stated a must have for any boater or sailor! The second expanded edition of Happy Hooking - the Art of Anchoring features: More gear More photos More illustrations More independent reviews Experience from both sides of the Atlantic Personal anecdotes based on many thousands of miles of sailing and countless times anchoring Unless you are far offshore, at some point or another you are going to need to 'park' your boat. Just like knowing how to stop your car before you start is perhaps the most important part of driving, we feel that anchoring is perhaps the most important skill you can and should acquire in boating. Anchoring a boat can be a lovely dance in a harbor, or a painful and often embarrassing display of Homo sapiens' inability to plan or communicate. We will endeavor to help you find a combination of tackle and technique best suited for your circumstances when anchoring your vessel. By outlining how different anchors work, the pluses and minuses of different adjunctive pieces of equipment, the current thinking about how to deploy this equipment, and how to select an anchorage, we hope you will be armed with enough information to make some informed decisions about what might work best for you. If you could take only one piece of advice from these pages with you on your travels, perhaps you will remember what Tommy Moran, an old salt in the West of Ireland, advised time and again: "Anchor as though you plan to stay for weeks, even if you intend to leave in an hour." Happy Hooking! EDITORIAL REVIEWS: Ocean Cruising Club The definitive textbook on the subject. Cruising Club of America "Happy Hooking" is well organized, well illustrated, and easy to read. It should be mandatory reading for novice sailors and charter operators would do well to place copies throughout their fleet. This would be an excellent gift to up-and-coming boaters. Captain John Jamieson, Author of Skipper Tips and Seamanship Secrets The single most important guide to anchoring for the modern sailor of the 21st century. Easy to read and filled with super clear illustrations and drawings. Add "Happy Hooking-The Art of Anchoring" to your onboard list of "must have guides" for safe anchoring-wherever in the world you choose to cruise! Might be compulsory reading for the new sailor. Even the most experienced will find much new material here. Latitudes & Attitudes Seafaring This is the bible for all things anchoring.
