Default Trip Line

Back in the Dark Ages, we did most of our boating on the Ohio River. Often we anchored out overnight. Always, there was the chance that the flukes of the anchor would become lodged under a waterlogged branch or tree. We fastened a light line with a small float to the lower end of the anchor. If the anchor was "trapped" under an obstruction, a pull on this line would help to remove the anchor from under the naughty obstruction. ��
