Members Tips - Weighing (Retrieving) Anchor

  1. First, sort out a set of hand signals with your deckhand, who needs to go to the bow.
  2. Motor forward gently as the chain/rope is recovered.
  3. Wash the chain/rope (if possible) with fresh water.
  4. If the anchor is difficult to retrieve, secure chain/rope and gently motor over and forward the anchor, bearing in mind to keep propellor clear.
