Anchoring P#1 (P-piloting)

Now I have a tandem on a chain and rope anchor. In tandem I have Rocna and  Bruce  and on the rope i have Danforth

I had training with an additional anchor. I have attached  30  feet  of chain  to Danforth anchor  and then the rope. The other end of the rope i did tied to Tereza. I put it all together in  dingye. Then i  drove   approximately 15 feet away on the left from the point where main anchor was . And i  throw the anchor. Then i went  back to Tereza and and pulled the rope to get anchor to hold. After that i release the rope again. I was then checking trough the afternoon if the rope get in tension. I that case i would now that the tandem is plowing.

 

This is how I look now. 11#M

me

This is how I  look now.  The last night was windy up to 20 knots. It is hard  not to worry what would happen if anchor would not hold. And for the afternoon the weather forecast is from 20 – 25. I am listening also weather forecast on channel 1 for local region on VHF radio and they are telling about wind gusts to 35. I have 2 anchors now on one chain. I will put also another on  rope for extra security or maybe i will go on mooring.

This is the way i am anchored now. The first anchor holds the second down.

After the rain always comes the sun. 10#M

(as my friend Alfi would say)

My new home: Dinner key marina in Coconads grove. It is in Miamai south. It is a beautiful morning. I am anchored. So i am staying for free. I am using marina internet. I have a good food market 10 min away by bicycle and Home depot shop for tools is just next to market. I have 10 days to make some work on Tereza before going on open sea. Yes, and i almost forgot i am waiting for new passport and credit cards to be made and i will let them to be sent to Slovenian ornery embassy in Miami beach. I could not give finger prints there, but i can get my post be sent there. (i have not get yet the official conformation for that yet)
