Things You Will Need
Anchor line, Anchor ring or shackle, Stranded nylon cord
Step 1First make two turns around the ring or shackle leaving the turns open.
Next take a half turn around the standing line and feed the free end through the turns and pull tight.
Next tie a half hitch knot around the standing line and pull tight. The half hitch is made by passing the bitter end (end of the anchor line that you are tying to the ring or free end) around the standing line and passing the end through the loop and pulling tight.
The bitter end or free end should be lashed, "secured", to the standing line by wrapping and tying the two together with stranded nylon cord.
Boats can bring a great deal of pleasure and relaxation but they also come with regular maintenance. Use an anchor bend knot to attach a new line to a boat anchor.
