ASSEMBLE ONSHORE ANCHOR ASSEMBLIES
the following assembly and deployment of onshore anchor procedures need not be
performed should bulldozers be used as anchoring point.
Lay out onshore anchors, ground tackle and tensioning gear to facilitate assembly.
Center flounder plate (9) on mooring line (7).
Attach anchor bridle (10) to flounder plate (9).
Long legs of the anchor bridles are placed outside short legs. Do not lay out anchor bridles
with a long leg running between two short legs. Anchors will drag 20 - 25 ft before
performing in tandem and reaching maximum holding capacity. Initial layout of the anchors
must allow for anchor drag distance when considering distance above high water mark
where anchors will be fully embedded.
Attach anchor bridles (10) to anchor shackles (11).
Space anchors (12) wide enough a part to prevent anchor nearest flounder plate (9) from pulling up on adjacent
bridle leg (10) as anchor digs in.
