Viewers will also learn how to set their anchors in various conditions taking into account wind and current, other boats, and hazards in their environment, and how to safely stay at anchor.

Also featured are special tips such as how to safely unset anchors and smoothly depart from points of anchorage.

Along with the new video, the USPS DML is adding a related boater education slideshow on Anchoring as well as several new safe boating images.

The USPS DML has as its partner BoatUS and is cosponsored by Discover Boating with a contribution from Weems & Plath.
