Anchor's Away is an excellent tool to use when attempting to get to higher ground so Captain Deadbeard can snipe from a safe place. In addition, it's also a decent escape tool since as you can still move while activating the ability. You can launch yourself behind cover, or just to make you harder to hit. If you accidentally trigger this ability, you can cancel it without penalty.
Despite the fact you can damage plants with this ability, it should only be used as a last resort as it is difficult to land a hit with it due to it's trajectory. However, it can be useful in engaging unaware plants in close combat. You can start off with a large amount of damage then proceed to use Scurvy Scattershot or Barrel Blast to destroy the plant.
