Re: Since Hurricane prep has already been mentioned ...

thanks, I did include 65' of chain to my total scope calculation (165' total), but you are right I did forget to add the deck height. If I add a 20' pendant, past the ball, than I have a total scope of 185', which comes pretty close to 10:1 anyway.

The anchor knots do include extra half hitches and then seizing (of some form) with extra line bagged or tie wrapped to the rode.

I could tie the off the blocks so they sit inside the swing circle of the boat (< 20 feet from swivel if I use a 20 ' pendant)

The chain sounds like a good idea, I still have to buy/fabricate the nylon pendant with hard eye's on both ends, the chain, shackles and protective cover. A Yale Maxi Mooring pendant is $100 at Defender is close to the same price point. I am thinking one of those as primary and the chain approach as my back up.

thanks again,
