I found on the C320 site that chain can be used on the windlass but it'll knock the chrome off the drum (I'll get the make and model and look it up), others parallel a line to the chain but I think that could turn into a mess with a long run.
Yeah...Keep it simple.. Most people have the chain...rope combo.
Of course keep your danforth/ fortress as a secondary one....just saying

Sailing is just the bottom line, like adding up the score in bridge. My real interest is in the tremendous game of life.- Dennis Conner

Re: Ground Tackle For Chessie Mud

I have a 22# Danforth that I used during the hurricane a couple years ago in the Chesapeake. When I came back it took me over 30 mins to get the anchor out of the mud because it was dug in so deep. I had to use my winch to the point I was worried it would break under the stress. That anchor is overkill for my 27' sloop but I can certainly say that type of anchor works very well in the Bay.

We have an over sized (for our boat) Delta that has held our boat in various Chesapeake anchorages with no problem. The Danforth is backup.

Re: Ground Tackle For Chessie Mud

I have a 35 lb Manson with about 25 ft of chain.

We haven't anchored out a ton with our boat in rough conditions - we just got her in November - but the Manson has held every time and on the first try.
