Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

BIG = GOOD, BIGGER = BETTER. That's my point. I'd rather ride on my Chain weight before I pull on the anchor. Alway's have and alway's will. the laws of corrosion dictate that the 1/4 chain will deteriate in strentgh expenentially each year there fore need replacing fairly often. If your comfy leaving the boat on the hook with that little chain then good, I would'nt leave my smaller boat on chain that small for an afternoon. 3/8 is the min. for a boat my size.
