    Anchoring a Sprit Boat

    I know what you mean. My current boat (a Wylie 34) sails to her anchor A LOT! A friend who did a five-year cruise in a sister ship - mostly in the South Pacific - told me that using an all-chain rode eliminates that tendency, although putting on an all-chain rode is a big commitment.

    Anchoring a Sprit Boat

    What's it like to anchor a boat with a big sprit, like a J/120? Does the anchor rode get all messed up with the sprit? Are there techniques that people have figured out to avoid that from happening? I'm not talking about anchoring for lunch, but rather serious days-on-end anchoring when long-distance cruising.
