Re: Anchor Setting Woes

Mark, what is the size of your boat again? And what is the size of your chain and is it standard or proof coil? I will be cruising Mexico and am re-thinking my ground tackle. I currently have a 35# Delta Fastset, 40’ of 3/8 proof coil chain and 250’ of 5/8 rode (nylon 3 strand). I also have a kellet. My boat is 34’ and fully laden for cruising will be about 16,000#.
