Re: Opinions on anchor swivels
There are lots of failures associated with swivels.
More chain isn't a driver toward a swivel. The biggest driver is a long periods at anchor in a reversing current. If you're spending a weekend in a river I don't think you need a swivel. If you're spending a month somewhere with reversing currents or shifting winds you might consider it. Alternatively you could just go sailing every few days and not worry about it.
sail fast and eat well, dave
