When the TVA is running 2+ generators on the Clinch, it can get a little fast. Anyone have any advice on slowing your drift, besides a motor? Options I know of are dragging a chain, using a drift sock, and I have tried a canvas bucket with various degrees of success. Out west we even cut a small trailer tire through one side and dragged it behind the boat. This works until it gets hooked on a rock.
Thanks.

To learn how to drop a TVA dock: 1. Drop your anchor and raise your sails

2. Tie a line to your anchor winch and to the bow anchor rail, you then use the anchor line to guide the anchor into the water.

3. Leave your anchor snubber behind the deck. It does not have to be good, you just don't want to use it if you are going to be pulling the boat over the side.

4. Pull your chain up in front of your anchor until you get a good bite, then release the chain.

5. Repeat the process until the chain is stuck in the sand.

6. If you don't pull it, the chain will just slide further back and further to the bow, so you should probably pull it, for sure.
