Setting the anchor
Many people dive on their anchor after backing down on it but have you ever watched what happens when you first try to set it? We do just about every time we drop the hook.
In the video below you can see our Mantus Anchor set in sand as we back down on it, slowly increasing the engine RPMs. Note that because there was no wind at the time that we deployed it, before backing down the anchor was simply lying on its side. We certainly wouldn’t want to leave it like that and if you’re anchoring in front of us, we hope you wouldn’t either!
