Flying an anchor ball is something only a few boats do, We’ve noticed English boats do very religiously, but then their insurance demands that they do it, mostly.
The only reason not to fly an anchor ball is because its a hassle to put one up, so perhaps a quick setup with bungy cord and locking cleats might make all the difference.
Many thanks, it’s a food teminder of how quick it is to do!
If you’ve time can you post a picture of yours set up? Thanks
We’ve just arrived in the Canaries, (Lanzarote, Arrecife) and hoisted our Anchor ball :-).. will post a shot of it. We use a bungy around the Genoa sheet and a line around the anchor cleat on our boat. Takes literally 20secs to put up.
