    Tried anchoring at Herne Bay for cake (you can see our priorities) but dragged inside the harbour; outside just on other side of pier was OK
    Surprised you dragged in Herne Bay Harbour, unless your anchor is most unsuited to mud.

    It was chums boat but pretty sure it was a NG anchor. He frequently anchors in the Medway so tested by mud for sure. Yes, we were surprised by the dragging and tried in a couple of places but not too far in as concerned about fouling moorings. Ttickety outside though

    The mud is really soft so maybe the anchor simply dragged through it, I guess. The CG use the place for national mud rescue training, that's how bad it is! All because they ignored local advice and built it the wrong way round.....
