What Is an Anchoring System?
When we talk about the anchoring system, there are a few common terms that we should know. An anchor is a tool that is designed to keep a boat in place by engaging the bottom of the waterway. The complete ground tackle includes the anchor, rode, and various fittings. The rode is the line from the boat to the anchor and is usually made up of a length of line plus a short length of chain.
There are several types of anchors, and each has its own advantages. The size and type of anchor used depends on the size of the boat, and it is recommended that each boat carry at least two anchors. Nylon is the most commonly used line for rode, and it may be either cable laid or braided and the line must be free of any cuts or abrasions.
