Re: My Brain is Anchored

Thank you guys.
All of this makes me think a 25 lbs Supreme would be enough for other than hurricane conditions and 1/4 high tensile is just fine. I prefer more nylon in the rode for its shock absorption and damping effects on the anchor, especially since we do not have any coral around here. I also plan to splice the nylon driectly on the chain and by pass the shackle and eyelet.
KLEM: can you post a link to the ABYC load preditions you mentioned?
Thanks again,
John
