Emergency Anchoring Drills for When Your Engine Quits

One of the fastest ways to stop the boat from drifting into danger is anchoring. In a three-knot current, your boat will be set 303 feet in one minute. In a six-knot current, that number increases to 607 feet. Since a nautical mile is a little over 6,000 feet, you rapidly can calculate your set; 100 feet per minute per knot of current. What you choose to do with that time can make a big difference.
