Re: Dealing w/ Anchor Rope?
if you dont have a dedicated compartment a five gallon bucket works great for modest amounts of rode, for the small waters around here, (it wont work for my 1000' of 3/4" nylon and 250' of 3/8 chain i use in the pacific) i like to drill a hole in the side of the bucket down about 3-5" and let about 5' of line with a loop hang out (tie this off in the boat) then just hand over hand put the rest of the line in and then the anchor on top. this way when you bring in the anchor you just put the line right back in the bucket and the wet line does not get every thing in the boat wet and it is easy to take out at the end of the day
2 anchors are always better than 1, even just as a back up or as mentioned above to keep from spinning

Said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn't know how to use it.
