Why don't u get a diver to get anchor ? Should have rigged with breakaway anchor line to allow reverse pull !
It's a hazard for other vessels prop wrap ur line ! Couldn't float it up with ball?
Sometimes different pull angles release anchor .

Hey Bob
At first glance at your post it does seem a little odd to ask for someone to unstick your anchor.

But after reading your responses you seem like the type of person that would do it for someone else no questions asked.

I too was in that shit weather sat and someone helped me out as well.

If I was rolling thru there id give it a pull for you. But im not before this weekend Nice that you tied it to a bouy though.

When I thanked the guy that helped me Sat, his respones was simple. "Fishermen stick together" .

Can never have enough good Karma on the water.

good luck w your anchor

Sometimes you have to just cut it and let it go. A diver will cost you much more that the thing is worth.

Also trying to forcibly tear it out could be dangerous even in the calmest of conditions. Read up on the 4 NFL'ers that went out in Florida and 3 of 4 were dead in 24 hours about 7-8 years ago.

They swamped and capsized their boat trying to free a stuck anchor using the engine to tear it out of the bottom.

Sometime you lose them. We all do.

Why did you have a chain on wreck anchor? Kind of frustrated the bend free-up design of it.

Yes good advice Frank... If you are going to try and free it, what you don't want to do is try to do it in a rough ocean, and you certainly don't want to tie to off your back cleat. If the anchor doesn't pop your stern is going to drop and you could get swamped.. You want to tie it off a a cleat to use the front cleat since you have more freeboard up front then you do in the back....
