A very readable book loaded with valuable information on modern and traditional anchors, rodes, techniques, and etiquette as well as the ‘occasional’ anecdote. This is the first new book on anchoring in the US in decades – simply stated a must have for every boater or sailor!
Unless you are far offshore, at some point or another you are going to want to park your boat. Anchoring a boat can be a lovely dance in a harbor, or a painful and often embarrassing display of Homo sapiens’ inability to plan or communicate. Happy Hooking is intended to help the reader find a combination of tackle and technique best suited for the circumstances when anchoring a vessel. By reviewing how different anchors work, the pluses and minuses of different adjunctive pieces of equipment, and the current thinking about how to execute the anchoring and weighing maneuvers, you should be armed with enough information to make some informed decisions about what might work best for you.
From truly differentiated new gear and proven techniques to the everentertaining subject of anchoring etiquette, Happy Hooking – The Art of Anchoring, authored by Captains Alex and Daria Blackwell, is sure to be a valued addition to any boater’s library. Divided into four parts, Happy Hooking provides a comprehensive overview of what it takes to securely anchor your vessel so you can enjoy a peaceful night’s rest and enjoy cruising in your local waters or venturing far and wide. Four sections cover broad subject areas including:
1. “Hooking Gear” – Anchoring Tackle
2. “Getting Hooked” – Anchoring Techniques
3. “Hooking Up with Friends” – Tying Up and Rafting
4. “Hooking Rules” – Anchoring Etiquette
With more anchors to choose from, more options for gear to attach to them, more techniques being discussed in boating environments in real life and online, and less time to sift through the information, it is a subject that is more confusing than ever to...
