This website makes no warranties, expressed or implied, about the suitability of any particular anchorage. You must understand that conditions such as bottom qualities, and bottom-holding ability, can vary significantly from place to place within an anchorage and over time.

Always use common sense, and always keep an alert watch, and be conscious of changing conditions when anchoring anywhere.
