Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

Well the only chain I have is the 5/8 and the 30 feet of 3/8. It's in the Chain locker and it gives me a little weight in the bow. The other anchors are in lazzerette's and the dumb bells are in the bildge. I trade out anchors on the chain depending on the bottom. I don't have an engine so motoring out of situations isn't an option, and often sailing out isn't a good option but I do always anchor with sailing out in mind of course. The northhill actually has 10 feet of chain and some line on it cuz it's my stern emergancy anchor, quick deploy.
