I understand wanting to have less weight in the bow but couldn't that be achieved with less chain? Do you understand what I'm getting at here? The whole point of the chain is that it is heavier than rope, so why spend the money on light hi tensile chain when its only a short amount of chain? I can understand if you're going all chain. Seems silly to me so I stand by my original remark. Buy the heavy stuff. 50ft doesn't weigh that much, especially on a Morgan 37.
