re: Anchor rode keeps wrapping around fin keel - can we prevent it?

I take it you don't have a chain rode? When we used to ride on two anchors with line in the rode, we used to run a 10 lb lead ball down the rode to sink it when the current went slack so the boat would clear it when it swung around. Wonder if something like that would work for you?
