Re: Anchors Away...

18 lb Danforth, 30' 3/16" chain and then maybe 40-50 foot rode...(I thought it was further out)...Sand bottom, 17' water where we dropped anchor.

Definetly need more practice setting and sinking...

I did back down on the anchor after dropping it, but didn't feel a jerk or dead stop pull on rode...more of a back up and pull the rope tight but no "termination" point.. Wasn't really sure what I was expecting to feel...first time and all...
