  • The silent dangers of using rope that is too small
  • If there is such a thing as too much scope
  • Swivels — should I or shouldn’t I
  • How not to use tandem anchors

  • Plus much more!

Jill and Rudy Sechez first began cruising in 1997 aboard a 36-foot wood, cutter-rigged sailboat that they built in a small backyard. They currently live and cruise aboard a 34-foot sail-assisted wood trawler, which they designed, then built under the trees out in the woods. Relevant to this book, they have seen their boats successfully through seven hurricanes, anchoring through five of them, in addition to numerous tropical storms and countless gales. They cruise primarily the east coasts of the U.S., Gulf of Mexico and the Bahamas, with a trip to Bermuda along the way.

Anchoring: A Ground Tackler's Apprentice

This was an excellent, informative book, really heavy, man. I rode it from start to finish. Without it, I'd be sunk. It really kept me grounded... oh,, wait. You dig ?!?
