Anchoring: A Ground Tackler’s Apprentice is exactly what its title proclaims — and a little more. The knowledge that Rudy and Jill Sechez impart comes from years of living aboard and cruising a 34-foot sail-assisted wooden trawler of their own design and build. Beyond the hows and whys of choosing and deploying ground tackle, the authors present their tried-and-true concepts on such topics as the “paradox of stretch” in rope, the type of bottom and modifications in scope that each demands, and myths and misconceptions about anchoring. The writing is technically detailed but presented in a comprehensible style.
