Tripping line

When you are berthing stern to – known as mediterranian mooring, and you have doubts concerning unknown obstructions on the seabed, or if you have to anchor in a crowded anchorage, it is better to attach a tripping line to your anchor.
The tripping line is a light buoyed line with one end attached to the crown or to the eye on the back of the anchor, and the other end made fast to a wooden buoy.
