You are half right
I use a 15lb bruce knock off w/20' of 5/16 ht chain and "not sure how many ft of 1/2" three braid rode. 28' boat at 8k loaded. IMHO you can't beat a bruce lb for lb.
Pound for pound you certainly can beat a Bruce - even a real one. On the other hand, dollar for dollar a Bruce knock-off does pretty well.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
