Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

certainly, I'm on a tug boat now but I'll be home this week. It's not a lot, The chain sit's in my Chain locker, 100 feet of 5/8, it has a devider and on the other side is 30 feet of 3/8 and 100 feet of 1/2 inch line. The 35 danforth sit's nicely on the bow roller and the Big CQR sits on the Danforth like it was made for it. My big boy anchor s in the aft laz sitiing low and comfy, and I have a northill in my starboard cockpit laz and on the other side a folding fisherman in a bag. I'm inspired to make a video of how things look and work on deck and below the water. I usaully use the CQR and the chain. set it and forget it. Drop and let it feed out. EZPZ. The divider is set up in a way that a good amount of the 5/8 is under the 3/8 set up.
