Re: Retirement

Hi Minnewaska- Wondering how are you going to carry the 300'. Hooked up and ready to deploy always or 200' and another 100" ready to shackle together. See people buying Spade anchors to get weight off the bow then put huge weight in chain up there. Agree to get 5:1 or better in some places 300' is necessary. ( Have 200' of 5/16 HiTest now-it's alot of weight plus the weight of the chain/line secondary anchor set up). Also, it's sometimes scary to be anywhere near some of the bareboaters.
