Seems this depends on type of anchor, chain vs rode, conditions, and situation. Why deduce it to one figure when there are many times this wont apply? Seems Chapmans quotes a range of 7:1/8:1 as satisfactory but there are times when you would go more or less (no less than 5:1 - Chapmans reports anywhere from 5:1-10:1 when heavy). And dont forget to add the height of your bow in the equation.
Administrator: Apologies for the change of subject, but I have written a couple of PMs and severeal email to you over the last few weeks with no response. How does one contact you? I've run out of ways available.
