 Giving Your Boat Some Legs

sailnet.com brings us: Giving Your Boat Some Legs. "While in Madagascar, I even experimented by standing Atom bow-on to the beach with an anchor set out to each side connected to halyards at the top of the mast. This system sounded fine in theory, and may even have worked if I had not upset the balance by stepping off the side of the boat, causing one of the anchors to move slightly from the increased load. Moving in slow motion, Atom rolled gracefully and unstoppably over on her side. Fortunately, the only real damage done was to the skipper’s pride, as witnessed by a group of curious local fishermen who gathered around."
