Re: Anchor Setting Woes
Me I like chain ... we have Bruce hanging off 90m chain plus the same of rope. Provided we find the bottom that seems to hold us pretty well.
Previous boat was originally CQR with 35m chain. OK but the CQR seemed not to like soft sand. Replace with Rocna and no further problems provided I let out good scope.
An older boat of mine came with a Danforth, 2m chain plus rope. I had all kinds of problems with that setup .... surprise surprise .... but once I added an extra 20m of chain all went fairly well though to be honest I never fully trusted the Danforth.
