So. I seem to have passed test 1 . It went out now. I don't know whether this is going to one of you or just for all to see !!! I am going to need a sense of humour . I live in derbyshire the village I was born in is the furthest village from any coast line ! it's a mid life crisis . We bought the boat and we have just done the power boat two day course and are now spending money on getting it kitted out .

Good quality anchor of appropriate size for boat c/w chain & plenty of rope. Can be bought already made up. Be sure to lockwire any shackles.
Pack of flares.

Anchor chain and rope with boat don't know what quality . You have just got technical . Wiring a shackle is that to stop it unscrewing .

Yes. Surprising how many don't. Usual term is 'seizing'.
