Accessories – Anchoring & Mooring

Anchoring and mooring are necessary maneuvers for all boat owners, and are at the same time among the most delicate steps when at sea. Fortunately, we are helped by increasingly modern ad hoc accessories (anchors, anchor windlasses, fenders) that make mooring and anchoring easier, avoiding unforeseen mishaps and difficult moments on board. Here are six new products, scouted at the shows and otherwise.
