New Online Class: Anchors & Anchoring

From Boater's University

Used properly, an anchor could save your life in an emergency. No topic sparks more passionate dockside debate than the new boater who asks, "Which anchor is best?" Instructor Chuck Hawley's goal is to demystify anchors and anchoring. Hawley takes an objective look at various types of anchors and how they work. He discusses the concept of “rode,” the chain and line that connect anchors to the boat. He talks about the modern history of anchor development and demonstrates various anchoring techniques. If you're new to cruising or just beginning to dream about living aboard, you need this online course!
