Anchor in brief
The anchor lies on the bottom and engages, and not only the anchor holds the yacht, but also the weight of the anchor chain. And this process is mutual - the anchor does not allow the chain to crawl, and the chain keeps the anchor pressed to the ground, helping it to cling to the solid and adds weight.
The anchor released from the vessel should lie on the bottom, turn over correctly and catch on the ground. The main parameters of the anchor are holding force, size and ease of storage. The higher the holding force, the less bulky the anchor you will carry with you. There is a universal rule for calculating the weight of an anchor, which is suitable for most types of anchors: - for every 100 kg of your boat's displacement - 1 kg of anchor weight.
