chrondi is an unknown quantity at this point
Just let me comment that Solent's statement that "water pressure pressing down on the surface of the rope" has any effect on the boat's anchoring stability is not a sign of stupidity, but it just reveals a total ignorance of basic laws of physics. His school should be proud to have him once in the past as a pupil!
