More Chillin in North Sound

Micheal Bean - Thursday show

And in between there is "Harbour TV" every boater knows what that is!! It's very entertaining to watch the new or charter boaters either anchor or pick up a mooring ball.

Plow through the anchorage at 4-5 knots. Drop the anchor in their chosen spot, immediately overrun it and then wonder why it doesn't set. They think that charter company must have given them an anchor that doesn't work. So, lets do it again and again and again.

Mooring balls are almost as entertaining , and we admit can be difficult to grab, but the trick is to actually get the boat to the ball, not 30 ft away, hnaging over the side trying to reach it with a 10 ft pole, while the boat drifts farther away. Again, let's try it over and over.
