anchor rode

Bigger is stronger, but also less elastic (under comparable loadings), which is an important characteristic in a rope (rope/chain) anchor rode. There’s no point in wildly exceeding the holding power of the anchor (or whatever the ‘weak link’ in the assembly is), at the expense of stretch.
