I think most small power boat operators operate in similar patterns; run the boat out on the water for a bit, then anchor out in a quiet place for fishing or picnicking with family and guests. Safe anchoring isn’t hard, but if done incorrectly can cause problems.
Over the years of owning small power boats (18 foot runabouts), I’ve come up with a fewfor making anchoring easy and safe. I feel these hacks apply to all recreational power boats at least under 21 feet length.
