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

I have a combination chain and rope anchor line, and have the end of the rope tied with a bowline through a hole in an 8" piece of treated 2x4 lumber that is too big to go through the deck pipe so the anchor line can't escape the locker entirely. Like Minn, I use a deck cleat to tie off the line for holding the boat.
