Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Anchoring in deep water in the S Pacific.
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I anchored in 30 meters in Bora Bora at 3:1 scope. We were there for several days with winds in the high 30s-low 40s.
The scope required to safely anchor can decrease as the depth increases. This is the effect of the catenary - the weight of the chain makes the 3:1 scope pull pretty much parallel to the bottom.
