It isn't easy

Mako if we're drifting to fast we ussually anchor up on the edge, which requires sometimes upto 2000' of line, the other option of coarse is a sore supject and that is to tie up to a pot, which people still do but isn't appreciated by the commercial guys. We picked up a para-tech sea-anchor over the winter it's 12' in diameter we're going to try it this season since water depth isn't a factor. I've heard good and bad about them, you are suppose to let out 300' of line with it so a close running boat may be a problem, and depending on the tide once deployed your lines may angle toward the bow, most guys tether it off to a spring line to get a better angle. I've also talked with guys that actually replace their anchor on their windlass with the sea-anchor we may try this. It should be interesting we're probably only going to try it when it isn't crowded out there. Just some thoughts for you. Good Luck.
