With my boating plans for the summer including the Severn and the tidal Trent I have been looking into getting a few items that I hope I'll never need. I've got the lifejacket, even if the courier firm did deliver it to a house eight doors away on the other side of the road without leaving a note and in the depths of the storage locker in the engine room on Starcross I've found a Danforth anchor. Obviously the anchor's not much good on its own and I'll need some chain and rope, although I've no idea how much, and I'm still a bit puzzled about how and where to attach it to the boat.
The obvious place is either the "T-stud" at the bow or one of the stern dollies but from what I've read on-line this may not be such a good idea as these might not be able to take the strain of the anchor being deployed and I might end up losing both them and the anchor.
What does everybody else do?
