Walk-Thru Backrest
Make certain you have enough anchor line (or scope)
for the depth of water. Your anchor line should be 6 to 7
times the depth of water anchored  in. For example, if
you are in 20 feet of water, use 120 to 140 feet of  an-
chor line.
Secure anchor line to  bow eye or deck cleat.
Never tie anchor line to a rail, rail fitting or other
hardware not designed to support this stress.

Approach your selected anchoring site from downwind
and come to a dead stop over the spot where you want
to drop anchor.  Lower the anchor.
Maneuver the boat slowly backwards until length of an-
chor line is 6 or 7 times the depth of the water.
To prevent personal injury, swim platform must
not  be  occupied    and  transom   walk-thru
backrest door must be in place while engines
are running.
Fasten the anchor line around the bow eye or deck cleat.
Anchor flukes should  dig in and catch. Watch  for an-
chor drag by checking shoreline landmarks at the time
the anchor  is dropped and  one-half hour later.  If the
boat has drifted away from these reference marks, the
anchor is dragging and must be reset.
To prevent personal injury, DO NOT sit on the
transom walk-thru backrest door.
To weigh anchor:
Start the engine running before pulling in anchor.
Anchors are  available in different  shapes, sizes  and
weights to fit different boats, uses, and conditions. The
weight of the anchor and diameter of anchor line should
be governed by the size and weight of your boat.   Four
