120 feet off the coast of Maine waiting for the fog to lift. Dead calm night. Not enough battery to run the radar that night. Between chain and rope rode, I carry about 1200 feet total that I can splice together as needed. The bulk of it is in 150 shots of 3/4 nylon that I keep at the a total of 200 feet of 3/8 triple B chain. Needless to say, I like to keep enough line on hand if needed. Also comes in handy for tying up in mangroves for hurricanes.

Note: I'd reccomend everybody carry an aft anchor with a shot of at least 120 feet of rope rode ready to go in an emergency when there is no time to let the bow anchor go.
