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

We have a huge pad-eye bolted through 6" of wood and glass in the bottom of the anchor locker. I don't use that to secure the boat, it's to retain the anchor. We have 50" of chain and 300' of rope on the main anchor so I usually let out 60' minimum so the chain doesn't scratch up the bobstay and then I cleat the line to both samson posts on the foredeck.
Belt and suspenders.
