One of those quietly fascinating threads that could only happen in the Sailing Anarchy forums has been gathering steam since the end of 2013, and at over 20,000 views and nearly 1200 posts, it’s become Gear Anarchy’s most viewed thread, because it is a comprehensive resource for cordage testing information that’s uncluttered by manufacturer puffery and glossy brochures.  We’re not saying that the ‘official’ numbers are wrong – we’re just glad that Evans Starzinger, Brian Toss, and a pile of other smart guys are making and breaking hundreds of knots and splices in dozens of materials entirely because they want to improve the information available to the public.

The thread starts here, and we humbly suggest you pack a lunch.  And be sure to check out Evans’ website to see where he’s coming from, and Toss’s because, well, he’s awesome.

 Anchoring is easy.  95% of the time, all you need to do is drop the pick, let go a pile of line, and back down.  But what about the other 5%?  Unknown holding ground, a crowded anchorage, tidal swings, williwaws, a storm; any one of these issues can turn your boat into a pile of matchsticks.

Longtime Anarchist and longer-time world cruiser Evans Starzinger shared a Powerpoint presentation with the Cruising Anarchy forum that addresses all these problems; whether you’re a racer thinking about cruising, a racer thinking about anchoring, or a cruiser looking for knowledge from one of the foremost cruisers in the world, we encourage you to first read the thread,  download the document, and then get back in the thread to ask Evans for details.  Another great resource from the kinder, gentler Cruising Anarchy forum, brought to you by BoatSmith.
