Anchor behavior

In auto-anchor-mode, the anchor will be dropped automatically when the player leaves the vehicle and retrieved when the player enters the vehicle.

In manual-anchor-mode, a key must be pressed (while inside of the boat) to drop or retrieve the anchor. If anchor key is pressed while driving, the vehicle will perform an emergency stop.

Auto-anchor-mode and manual-anchor-mode can also be configured to be used simultaneously (check configuration file)
