Description

“Avoid the Art of Dragging”

Rudy and Jill Sechez will provide a PowerPoint presentation and demonstrations, focusing on the four critical elements that are “must haves” for any type of boat every time you anchor. This includes how to determine the proper amount of scope, plus how to size all of the components in your ground tackle, including your anchor. Bring your questions; don’t be surprised if you come away with a better understanding of anchoring, as well as many good ideas for changes or upgrades for your ground tackle.

Living-aboard and cruising since 1997, Rudy and Jill Sechez have built both of their cruising boats, first a 36’ wood cutter, and later, their current 34’ sail-assisted trawler Briney Bug, their own design, also of wood. They spend most of their time in Florida and the Bahamas, but have also traveled the Gulf coast to Lake Ponchartrain, north on the Tenn-Tom River to the Tennessee, the east coast to the Chesapeake, to the Hudson River and some of the Great Lakes.

 

In addition to their articles on seamanship and anchoring, published in a variety of boating magazines, they have also authored the book “ANCHORING- A Ground Tackler’s Apprentice”.

 

In addition to their group presentations and seminars, Rudy and Jill conduct one-on-one onboard Training Sessions on anchoring, docking, and boat-handling. See more at trawlertrainingabc.com
