Important note for ground tackle breaking questions - did I mention strength of the parts? If not, here is what I've picked up:
-Oversize by 25% of the max load you expect on chain, shackles and swivels.
-NEVER ever buy "just what fits in the bow roller". Buy it as big as it has to be. That $15.00 piece of shackle or swivel can cost you hundreds when you need to dive for or replace that anchor.
-Don't cleat off to anything you use for sailing, like winches, small cleats for sheets, etc.
-Oh and I did forget to mention mousing off with wire. I found the anchor last summer in the beach probably from that same issue and happily laughed about it on here with the guys..
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
