Anchor Question

As a new rib owner I keep running into questions that are embarassing to ask, but I guess you have to learn some how. So, How should I attach the anchor to my boat? If at the bow should I let the line run over the tube or should I attach it to the tow ring? If not the bow then where? Thanks for the help.

Hi Clayton, this is the place to ask! Found this post useful about anchoring, but i`m sure if you do a search you`d find lots more!

Simple - just have a length of rope attached at all times to your winching/towing eye in the bow. Make the rope shorter than the boat so it can't get caught in the prop.

When you anchor just tie the anchor line to the bow rope. Make a loop in the anchor rope say 10' from the end and tie the bow line to that loop. That way you will still have some anchor rope left in the boat and you can pull the rope in without leaning over the bow.

it is easier to do than say!!!

Thanks

I know the tubes are tough, but thought I probably shouldn't the rope cinching down on them. Thanks for the explanations. One less thing to feel stupid about.
