Thanks everyone for the replies.

The minimum for a 29 - 35 ft boat in Noank, CT is 500 lbs with 25 ft of bottom and 25 feet of top chain. There is no minimum pennant length, but with 50 ft of chain I guess it doesn't matter too much. For a boat over 35 - 44 ft the minimum is 750 lbs with the same length of chain.

I could not copy and paste the entire table because it would not format correctly. However, the chain size requirements are just as hefty. Might be over kill but, better safe than sorry.

I'm going to the Newport boat show hoping to find a deal
