Re: Let's talk about anchors some more
I respectfully suggest you anchor with 1/4 inch chain in a storm, with an unexpected set of rollers comeing a cross an anchorage with some fetch, hang the anchor on some un accounted for debris, don some dive gear and go down an actually watch the forces of nature with your own eyes instead reading about it. then shorten the chain till your right up on the anchor and sail around on it untill your able to get it free all the while bouncing in said big chop. I respectfully doubt reading an article is going to sell me a 7 pound anchor and chain that I can't even get a grip on. On paper, math makes sense, the forces of the ocean will make a believer out of you.
