The month of April takes a detailed look at anchors and chain.
Starting with a review of the major anchor suppliers in Australia and what they have to offer, we then take a detailed look at how to select the right chain for your anchor and what all those numbers and letters stamped on chain actually mean.
Finally we give you the dimensions and specifications to make your own 'Boomerang'. The best device to ensure your anchor feeds into your bow roller correctly – every time.
Two years after we published the story of Lati's restoration we follow this little craft on its first trip across the Atlantic.
It is also NSW feature month and we have three destination stories showing you the top ten anchorages on the east coast, as well as a few other lesser known safe harbours.
One yachtie provides his lessons on how he installed his own hot water solar heater. Plus the usual tips, tricks, recipes and gadgets you need to get out there.
