Anchoring, chain diameter is a big difference?

Hi uri,
With a larger, heavier chain, you''ll fair better with less scope. May I also say that the plow type anchors are not known for their ability to hold safely with low ratio scopes. However, the Bruce anchor is known for just that. With that being said,I''d would suggest you purchase a Bruce for your primary anchor.
Good luck,

Dennis
