How to Tie The Best Anchor Knot
The Anchor Hitch or Bend (a.k.a. Fisherman's Hitch or Bend) is one of the most common types of knots used to attach your anchor line/rode to your anchor. It's the knot I use with all of my anchors.
As you can see, this knot is shown using an anchor shackle. You should be using some form of shackle or swivel but you can use this knot just as easily by tying it directly to the anchor.
There are four essential reasons for installing a bimini top cover on your boat:
- Protection from the elements
- Protect your boat
- Quick and easy to change from open-air to shelter as needed
Preventing water collecting or pooling on your boat cover is best achieved by providing a proper boat cover support system or frame beneath the cover.
Boat cover support systems can be installed by a professional, come in kits ready to self-install, or can be created from scratch as a DIY project.
