Anchoring with Assurance: Don’t Get Carried Away

Know how to anchor in a variety of situations, weather, or seabed and be prepared to adjust for changing conditions.

Learn the skills and knowledge of securing your vessel to the bottom through the use of a line, chain, and one or more anchors. Whether it’s for fishing, swimming, a lunch break, or an overnight stop, one of the real pleasures in boating is “hanging on the hook” in some quiet spot. Emergencies such as loss of power, equipment breakdown or failure, or weather hazard may also require that your boat be anchored for a time.

Good seamanship demands that all boaters know how to anchor safely. Anchoring topics begin with how to select an anchorage and how to anchor depending on conditions. After learning how anchors should be used, you will know if yours is satisfactory or what kind(s) to buy. The seminar covers useful anchoring tips and tricks and concludes by discussing how to moor and raft safely.

All boaters will face situations where they want or need to anchor. This seminar will give you the knowledge and insights you need to anchor with confidence, and members of your local squadron will be happy to help you practice anchoring under local conditions, so you don’t get carried away.

This seminar takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours.  This seminar is required for the Boat Operator Certification.  This seminar helps Mariners, GSA and Sea Scouts, BSA complete rank advancement requirements and electives.  Everyone is invited to listen to the seminar.  Credit (and certificate) is issued to paid participants. Chose the date that is best for you and if you need or do not need the credit.
