Re: SJ 23 to Cape Lookout
- If you throw out a second anchor it will really cut down on the amount
of see saw action. Spread them about 30 to 40 degrees with equal scope. I
know this isn't always practical, but it works.
- If you anchor the hull from a lower point, like the trailer eye, it
will also reduce the sideways action. Somewhat difficult to release the line
- Another thing you can do is to keep the bow down as much as possible.
Sleep up front for instance.
- Whenever I leave Panache moored I do so with the boom cocked over to
one side and the forward water tank full as possible. The boom sits there
between a line tied to the toe rail and the main sheet. The mainsail cover
presents enough windage to bias the boat to one side more than the other.
It is just another little thing that works. If you want to experience this
for yourself, anchor in rough weather and sit on one toe rail, about mid
ship. You'll notice that the sideways action is diminished.
(Always stay curious)
