    The whole idea of the ball pulling the anchor up is by pulling it out in the opposite direction you are correct in driving past anchor and keep going till ball bounces on the surface if using a solid ring instead of a grab clip feed a doubled over peice of coat hanger wire or similar into rope sticking out 4 inches or so on an angle facing towards anchor for the ring to catch on and hold near surface

    Just drive round the ball by a couple of feet then straighten up and travel virtually straight over anchor otherwise your not pulling anchor straight out opposite the way it hooked in if you deviate out at 45 deg you will get caught up on reef to the side of your anchor
