Swivel Shackle or Not?
Just curious, I have always used a swivel shackle with my anchor. But read in L&A that they often don't, at least with a spade type anchor?
Some say its another point to fail. Some would say it helps the anchor set better and when the wind shifts?
Does it depend on the type anchor?
What say you and why?
