Re: Anchor Setting Woes

Use all chain with 75lbs Rocna. Careful about the snubber as with no stretch in the chain lack of good snubbing can work the anchor out in a choppy anchorage. Try to use as much line as possible and sometime a bridle of snubbers which makes the boat sail less. Have a set up to attach snubber where rod for short sprit attaches to hull. Puts the snubber way down low which should help but haven't rigged it yet.
