When we arrived in Bahia Puerto Balandra around 5pm we were stunned by how beautiful the bay was, with rugged cliffs and small coves of white sand beaches. We set our anchor as usual, in 12 feet of water at low tide, and paid out 75 feet of chain. After making sure that it was set well, we jumped into the emerald green water with our snorkel gear. Mike swam over to our anchor (a Manson Supreme – the name alone helped me sleep… until now) and made sure it was nice and buried in the sand.
- Just because your anchor has held out through 40+ knots of wind before doesn’t mean it will do so again.
- Check if lone rock wedged itself into set anchor in an otherwise all sand bottom.
- Turn on anchor and depth alarms!
