Overview

The Complete Book of Anchoring and Mooring addresses anchoring systems, techniques, and permanent moorings for boats from 12 to 80 feet in length. It covers monohulls, multihulls, light displacement sailboats, cruisers, sportfishers, passagemakers, and workboats. In short, it is for all recreational and working boats in this size range.

The book deals not only with anchor behavior, but also with the rode assembly, riding stoppers, and the human factors. What formerly was thought of as strength through size (heavy anchors and large rodes) has been refined to decrease weight, lighten loads on the boat, and reduce difficulty in handling.

Utilizing a systems approach with respect to equipment and techniques and analytical methods for loads, Earl R. Hinz has made a number of contributions to the state of the art. Among them are bow anchor roller design, chain locker and navel pipe design, elastic anchoring techniques, tandem anchor systems design, and designs for permanent moorings. Sections on ground tackle selection, tandem anchoring techniques, anchoring in coral, and improving hurricane moorings have been revised. Most of these designs and techniques are clearly illustrated in the schematic drawings by Richard R. Rhodes.

Since the last printing of this book a number of revolutionary anchor concepts have appeared on the boating scene. These unique designs have shown exceptional performance when compared by a renown testing agency with their contemporaries. Changes made to this revised second edition assure its continued role as the state-of-the-art source book for the boating world.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Covering anchoring and permanent moorings for recreational and work boats from 12 to 80 feet long, this book employs a systems approach with respect to equipment and techniques and analytic methods in discussing loads. It covers anchor behavior, rode assembly, riding stoppers, and human factors. Most designs are illustrated with schematic drawings. Hinz is a retired aeronautical engineer and an ocean sailor who has logged 40,000 miles. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
