Re: Anchor Chain Size/Lenghth Suggestions (again)

bwindrope - and others with a Rocna/Mantus/Manson...concerning your comments about potential difficulties in extracting said anchor from sea floor without a windlass...is this possibly a legitimate concern...or would sufficient yanking/motoring be enough to free the anchor...do I need to be worried about being unable to extract the anchor. The bruce knockoff I have never really is a problem...

And, if this is a cause for concern...would I want to use the "rock slot' on the Manson to help extract the anchor, despite anchoring in a soft/muddy bottom?

Thanks again!
Brian
