Re: Let's talk about anchors some more
(Depth at maximum tide+height from water to bow roller) x 7= Amount of rode for 7:1 scope, the minimum requirement for safe anchoring.
Minor correction, but it can make a difference in shallow water. If you anchor in 10 feet of water with a 4 foot freeboard, you put out 98 feet, not 70. Or said differently, if you only put 70 feet out, you only have a roughly 5 to 1 scope.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
