Anchor like a pro





Seems a useful vid

Has anyone done this on ribnet?

Not close quarter stuff and You would need a large space to achieve this

I use the buoy retrieval... Often called an Alderney ring ... Virtually essential in the kind of depths I anchor... Handballing even a small anchor and chain from 200ft is at best a serious back ache!

Biggest risk of the ring is running over the rope & getting it wrapped round the prop so care is needed.
Whilst it seems the best way, don't attach the rope at the stern.
If it all goes wrong you could end up stern on to the tide & the rope can pull the stern down allowing you to be swamped esp with a low cut transom. Happened to a professional fisherman I know who got the rope round the prop whilst shooting a string of crab pots. Unable to lift the engine or get at the rope to cut it he put out a mayday as the boat went down & he was picked up out of the water by another boat within a few minutes. Boat recovered a few days later.
Attach at the bow, watch the rope as you motor up. If the anchor is stuck it will just pull the bow round.
Practice in shallow water in calm conditions out of the tide run until you get the hang of it.

Anchor always rigged to trip. Check which way the anchor is lying... Ribs lie to wind not tide, but rope in water is tide driven, so rope may be under or to side of boat! Apply straighten the boat to point at the anchor if possible. Slow forward to retrieve some line if possible. Short burst of reverse to trip the anchor, then motor up at an angle to lift the chain to the buoy. Need to move fast! A tripped anchor will not engage with the ring so make sure chain is heavier than anchor to stop it going back down. Drift down to buoy flaking rope into locker or bin. Always control rope by hand, avoid running over it, and never tied to stern... Needs some practice but becomes easy with repetition.

Interesting, but having to listen to that voice all day would want me to follow what ever anchor you use, overboard with it.
