Anchored there on 12/11/12. First time there. Nice homes surrounding anchorage. Weather radar showed lots of storms in the area. Put out 140′ of chain. Had several hours of heavy ts, wind from all directions and 10″ of rain. Boat swung 360 degrees several times and anchor held fine. Anchorage is relatively small, maybe two boats. Rate this one a good three

This is the second time we’ve anchored here and haven’t had a problem with holding but the wind isn’t very strong either, It’s a nice anchorage – over 13 feet at low tide in the center of the first basin and plenty of swing room.

Cruising News: You may want to adjust your description of this anchorage. I live right nearby. My guests have attempted to anchor here and have found the holding to be poor. These are experienced cruisers with all chain and big anchors. In the hurricanes of a couple of years ago, EVERY boat that anchored here dragged and ended up aground or against a dock. I have logged over 1000 nights on the hook in 37,000 miles of cruising. I can’t recommend this for conditions other than light to moderate winds. This is not a heavy weather hole.

Subject: Anchorage at Mile 1013
Cruising News: A short time back I sent information about poor holding in an anchorage near my home in North Palm Beach. I may have incorrectly referred to the “North Palm Beach Anchorage.” I intended to comment on the anchorage you refer to as “Mile 1013.” This anchorage is in a residential neighborhood in North Palm Beach, just off the ICW. The problem I noted is that the holding is poor and only suitable for fair weather. It is not a good storm anchorage. In the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons, ALL vessels that anchored here dragged anchor and ended up aground or up against docks at homes nearby. My experienced friends who have attempted to anchor their cruising boats in this spot using heavy plow anchors and lots of chain report difficulty getting a good set, or even a satisfactory set.
The anchorage you refer to as “North Palm Beach” is at the north end of Lake Worth. Sometimes referred to as “Little Lake Worth.” Boats seem to anchor successfully there, however, I have no personal experience to report on that spot.
Sorry if I made an error in reporting previously.
