I'm still not sure if the amount of swing we have is normal, normal for our type of boat or if there is something else going on that is contributing to it (dinghy drag? tying the rode to the side cleat at the bow? imbalance in weight distribution?). It's really not that big of a deal, just more of an annoyance, but when we're swinging almost 180 degrees (which happened in Charlevoix), we get a little concerned about how well our anchor can handle the motion without having to re-set itself numerous times.
Got any ideas, tips or tricks? Fill us in!
