It is pretty difficult to know what rode someone has used unless you are in a position to ask them. I would assume 10-1, or at least allow for it. In NC waters it is shallow enough not to usually be an issue, but if you are in 30 feet of water it can be.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
