f I haul enough I will start pulling chain aboard but the ball stays in the water.
On our boat, we haul up on the chain so about a foot of chain is out of the water. The chain hangs straight down and keeps the ball away from the boat. The ball will slide up and down on the chain, but it will be straight up and down. We have enough overhang that this works. As Jack said, this won't work with plumb bows.
