A friend of mine threw vigorously his SS anchor and long chain overboard to a far away distance to find out while anchor and chain flew over the bow that the chain extreme was not tied to his rope. Total loss, the water was deep...

The issue is that the day was slightly windy and the boat while drifting lost fast the exact place where the action took place, now it will be like looking for a needle in a haystack as it's an open beach front with no nothing built on land as a reference point from where to start the search...

Happy Boating
