Last evening, we went to the local sunset concert on our reservoir. You saw the pic from the cruise after the concert. Anyway, when I first got to the concert, there were several other boats there. I pulled into a spot that seemed to be good. I pulled out the anchor for the bow, stood tall and proud, cast out the anchor... and I might say, very beautifully. I heard laughter from the two boats nearby. I couldn't imagine how someone could laugh at such a wonderful act of securing my vessel. As I pulled the rope to get it snug, I soon discovered that there was nothing attached to the rope, any longer. Yes, the anchor rope had frayed, and I lost another anchor. So, I took a bow and laughed with my audience. After I was done with pride recovery, I pulled out the other anchor and cast it out, after which we enjoyed the music and fellowship with friends.
