Our Anchoring Background

We have spent over 300 nights on anchor over 2 years. We developed this process with trial and error and feedback from other boaters. With our 5 steps, we have NEVER dragged anchor and have anchored through all situations. We’ve used this strategy to successfully anchor in high winds upward of 40 knots, extremely packed anchorages where there is only a boat length between other boats, and in all bottom situations. Whether it’s sand, hard mud, soft mud, rocks, or weeds – we’ve tested these simple 5 steps and are ready to share them with you.

What’s Included

We share various topics in this course to effectively and confidently share how to anchor. We start with anchoring terminology. Afterward, we explain why you need to know how to anchor and what situations may arise on the water. Subsequently, we go into our 5 steps, first going into the details and then afterward together as we anchor our boat with you. We show what happens when things don’t go according to plan and action items to resolve those challenges. Lastly, we go into options for enjoying time on an anchor, including how to anchor with pets, enjoy time on the water, and the proper anchoring etiquette.

This course includes two hours of course material organized through 15 modules, a 16-page workbook, and our Great Loop Anchorages and Free Docks Spreadsheet.

    This is a good course for anyone trying to become familiar with anchoring. Jen and Elliot have a lot of credibility and are very knowledgeable of the subject. It is very well organized and covers the whole anchoring process. We enjoyed watching the videos.

    My husband and I sat down and took this course. We found it worth the time and informative. It’s great especially if you plan to anchor as much as we hope to. Can’t wait to get out there and use these skills. Thank you for the thought and effort to educate us. I especially liked the alarm setting on aqua maps. Thank again, Dave&Pam
