Might require a little bit of extra hardware and effort but should do the trick.
Not sure how that would work.
The chain comes up through the hole in the ball and has a shackle that connects the pennants at the top of the ball. The shackle will not drop through the hole.
If I haul enough I will start pulling chain aboard but the ball stays in the water.
If I disconnect that shackle I could easily drop the chain.
I think your guys have the pennants connected to the bottom of the ball.
