Re: Question regarding Rocna Anchor's Roll Bar

We have never had a windlass and have always used the 'snub and let the boat lift' the anchor as MS explained.

On only one occasion have we had to fight the hook to the surface inch by inch, ultimately finding that we'd snagged a 1" steel logging cable of indeterminate length (it made it to the surface without slipping free, so I figure it was twice the 40 or so foot depth.)
