Re: Let's talk about anchors some more

If there's anything this thread has inspired me to do, it's to get bigger chain and more of it. My boat came with a 35 lb Spade but unfortunately the chain is only 5 feet and barely bigger than the stuff you use to hang your kitchen chandelier - and it's rusty. Luckily WM has G4 chain on sale now for cheaper than I've seen it at any of our favorite online retailers. I plan to get as much 5/16 as I can reasonably carry/handle without a windlass.
