I really liked this book.  The authors seem to have done a great job of reviewing anchor types, explaining what anchors are, how they work and how to use them.  I enjoyed the entire book, and especially liked Appendix I “A Theoretical Study in Rode Behavior”.  Seeing the formulas and calculations showing how they came to the conclusion that a chain leader with a nylon rode is the best combination for anchoring was very informative and interesting.  Knowing why you should do something is almost as important as doing it.

The knowledge I gained has me wanting to go out and drop a hook!

Of course I have to rehab the boat first
