Re: Let's talk about anchors some more
I like big, what most consider "oversized" anchors. My boat is 28 feet, my primary anchor is a 50 pound CQR, with 100 feet of 5/8 chain. I don't drag, set it and forget it. My second anchor or "lunch hook" is 35 pound Danforth with 30 feet of 3/8 chain and 100 feet of 1/2 inch, 3 strand. My storm anchor, that is stored in an aft Lazzerette is a 70 pound Danforth that I put on the 5/8 chain. ...............
Have you considered using the new generation anchors... you know, Mansons, Spades or perhaps even Rocnas now that they have officially downgraded their steel and will build it to that classification?
Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?
