     The Anchor Bend is a modification of two half hitches.  As its name implies, it is used to bend a line onto an anchor ring.  It can be also be used to tie a line to a post or dock eye with more security than two half hitches.  The security is provided by the friction from the additional turn around the ring or post.  It also "spreads" the chafe over two turns.
To tie an anchor bend:
  • Make two parallel turns through a ring (or around a post.)
  • Next, bring the bitter end up, over the two loops and pass it through them.
  • Then, pass the bitter end under the standing part, up, over it, and through the loop just made.
  • For permanent applications, it it wise to lash the bitter end to the standing part.
  • 80% - 90% line breaking strength remaining.
Follow the boating and fishing knot links to the right for more clear pictures, directions and some animations on how to tie several popular boating and fishing knots.

     The links to the left provide current marine and local weather reports, extended local weather reports, tide charts and the U. S. Coast Guard Navigation Center, featuring GPS information, DGPS sites (which are a must for anyone with a differential GPS), LORAN-C information, Local Notice to Mariners plus a boat load of miscellaneous navigational links and my Site Map.  Although most of the links to the left provide local information, my out of state visitors can also find nationwide marine and weather information.

      The remaining links to the right have my Boating, Fishing, Fish Species, Fish Fileting and Tackle Tips pages.  Following those are my Search Engine pages, one with short descriptions and another in a table form, plus my Research Page.  Last but not least, is my Doll House Gallery featuring the Farmhouse and The Garfield!  These keep me busy in the winter.
     This page is best viewed at a resolution of 800 x 600.

     As you visit my pages you will notice I love animation.  Feel free to copy any of the animations.

     Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are having trouble locating marine, boating, fishing, tackle information or have any questions!
