Seems good to me but does it work? Do they rattler arround etc?
Thank you,

I don't "pin" my anchors as I've seen a few cases where the pins get bent from pounding into seas and when it comes time to anchor it's a two hour job to remove the pin. Just lash them securely, in an emergency you can cut the lashings fairly quickly.
