Now we know how Shawn accumulated so many anchors!
Just a thought/suggestion... consider tying a float onto your anchor line near where it is attached to your boat so you can retrieve at low water. In an emergency you can cut the line and the float is already on your line.
My friend Bill got pulled out of his boat on the Delaware River many years ago... he was stuck on bottom and had a lot of line in his boat when the boat went side-ways in the current... he could not hang on any longer so he let go of the line and was promply hauled overboard as the line was wrapped around his leg. he was lucky to survive.
Be careful so your boat doesn't wind up in a "widow's sale".
