Re: where to tie the byte of an anchor line...

I have an eye bolt in the anchor chain locker for the bitter end of the chain to attach to. It is only to keep from putting it all in the water, never to hold the boat. I tie a rolling hitch around the chain, let it go past the roller and secure it to both foredeck cleats to hold the boat.

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