It happens more often than I care to think about. BTW, if you have an all-chain rode... use a heavy nylon line to connect the rode to the boat, but leave the line long enough that it will exit the chain pipe so that if you have to cut it and leave the rode behind, you don't have to reach into the chain pipe or locker to do so. If the rode is under tension, as in a heavy weather situation, reaching into the chain pipe or chain locker is a good way to lose a hand.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
