Anchoring: A Ground Tackler's Apprentice
Basics and Beyond

By Rudy and Jill Sechez

Ever wonder aboutÉ

How to throw a rope
The paradox of stretch in rope
Whether chain is really necessary
The silent dangers of using rope that is too small
If there is such a thing as too much scope
Swivels Ñ should I or shouldnÕt I
How not to use tandem anchors
Whether there is more to preventing chafe than using firehose
The conundrum of bridles
Anchors for soft (mud) bottoms
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.
