Welcome to Living at Anchor

An online community to assemble information about the ever-changing state of anchoring out in your boat, with special focus on the little, sometimes shallow, out of the way places that can get overlooked. All information comes from firsthand, amateur accounts, and is to be used at your own risk.

“It is not down on any map; true places never are.”

Herman Melville, Moby Dick
