Thanks for all the info. Argle Bargle, you make me look like a piker in the conservative ground tackle department! I doubt I could haul all that without a windlass.
My sloop is 10,500 lb displacement, 31'. My Delta is 35 lb., and I have 50' chain followed by Brait. When I've got the funds, I'll buy the 33 lb. Rocna.
My boat is a Cheoy Lee Offshore 31. Like Daisy, bless those poor guys, but not a ketch. Also no extra, added ballast in the form of concrete in the bilge (possibly per letter in Latitude 38). I refer to the cockpit as the "back 40."
Don't run. Heave to. Don't run. Heave to . . . (My big following seas mantra)
