Re: Anchor Rode Spectra?
Could you make a nylon 'shock absorber', suitably sized, so that a bight of Spectra hangs loose and the nylon stretches to absorb shock gently, instead of the sharp snub from Spectra?
Something like this:
Anchor Shock - Heavy Shock
That might work, to a very
limited extent. Nylon, or any material, absorbs energy over its entire length as it stretches. Use five feet instead of 100 feet and you'll basically have one-twentieth the shock absorbing ability.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
