Anchor Right to Stay Put
"In the years I've been sailing, I've witnessed countless anchoring antics: There was the Caribbean bare-boater who heaved a spaghetti jumble of hook, line and chain over the bow, then jumped into the dinghy and disappeared ashore while the yacht drifted irresolutely out to sea. And the weekend warrior who showed up in a popular Biscayne Bay hideaway with no anchor aboard at all! It's amazing how few sailors really know how to anchor their boats well. Anchoring poorly endangers not only the skipper's own boat, but every other vessel in the harbor. Even if your anchor does usually hold, take a moment now to review these practical pointers - tips on how to anchor under power so that, come hell or high water, your boat will stay where you put it."
