   There is no aspect of boating that is less glamorous or more critical to the well-being of a boat and crew than anchoring. It requires an inordinate amount of work, heavy gear, some hazard to crew, and it usually b a wet and dirty job. Furthermore, anchoring is the last event in a passage, and the crew is eager to get ashore. As a result there is a sense of urgency that may result in carelessness. To minimize potential problems under these circumstances, it is important for your boat to be properly equipped with good ground tackle and for the crew to know how to use it. Then, and only then, can you toast a successful day at sea and sleep well at anchor. You may expect a book on anchoring to begin with anchors and immediately launch into a debate on which is the best anchor. I have chosen not to do that because the anchor is no more important than any other component of the ground tackle system. This Complete Book of Anchoring and Mooring addresses the needs of recreational and workboats in the 12- to 80-foot range. It covers mono-hulls, multihulls, light displacement sailboats, cruisers, sportfishers, passagemakers, and workboats. For the convenience of the reader it is divided into three parts: Part I—The Technology of Ground Tackle utilizes a systems approach to determine loads at anchor and translate them into ground tackle design criteria. What was formerly considered strength through size (biganchors and heavy rodes) has been refined in order to reduce weight and loads on the boat, and to ease the difficulties the crew has in handling the total ground tackle system. Part II—The Art of Anchoring brings into play the human factors which not only help design the ground tackle but determine its limitations and application. Techniques are presented that make use of your head rather than your back to make the most of an anchoring situation. Part III—Permanent Moorings is a treatise of its own on how to design and fabricate permanent moorings for harbors and other sheltered areas. Available mooring space (including local political restrictions) and your mode of use of the boat are critical to the decision to put in a mooring and what kind to use.
