Re: My last little bit of planning

Since all chain is really the best set up, I don't see the need to worry about stretch. Nevertheless, these need to be sized to the weight of your boat, not the necessarily size of your anchor, so you should be fine.

Naturally, the bottom conditions are going to have as much to do with holding strength as one's anchor. If set well, with proper scope in good conditions, there is no reason an anchor shouldn't hold to 25 kts and higher.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
