Re: At anchor in 60 knot winds: "Kiwi Roa" visiting South Georgia Island
Great video. thank you for posting it. It's amazing seeing a bar-tight anchor chain.
Were they using a NZ-made Rocna, or one of the Chinese ones? Any idea if the Chinese mettalurgy issue has been fixed? And were the other ones replaced as part of that?
(As patent holder myself, it's better to support the original inventor of this type of anchor.)
Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
