Re: Anchor Snubbers Redux
I use one of those rubber things (it seems the same) on one cleat connected to the chain trough a shackle. I don't trust hooks and I had bent some other apparently more friendly connections. I use also a big swivel. The shackle is pretty easy to take off.
When the wind blows over 20K I use two, one on each side of the boat. I don't pass those cables on the the bow roller. One on each side. I can take on anchor considerable winds without too much discomfort. This year I had been at least 4 days in two occasions waiting the Meltemi to go away (35K on the anchorage).
