Happy Hooking - The Art of Anchoring
Capt. Alex Blackwell
Capt. Daria Blackwell
Happy Hooking, now in its third edition, is a very readable book loaded with valuable information on anchoring tackle, anchoring technique, tying up and rafting, anchoring etiquette, as well as the occasional anecdote - simply stated a must have! (if we don't say so ourselves)
It is also the most up-to-date anchoring book out there!
If you could take only one piece of advice from these pages with you on your travels, perhaps you will remember what Tommy Moran, an old salt in the West of Ireland, advised time and again:
“Anchor as though you plan to stay for weeks,
even if you intend to leave in an hour.”
