Anchors are right at the heart of cruising.
They allow remote and wonderful places to be visited and enjoyed, without the need
of a solid dock or even a mooring buoy.
Firmly digged in the sea ground, the anchor provides a fixed point to which
the vessel can be moored.
The anchor chain is the mechanical link between anchor and vessel.
Sometimes a combination of chain and anchor rope is used, which is easier to
handle but may be less secure in heavy weather or rocky seabeds.
