When you shackle and unshackle are you using ceasing wire or anything else?

Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

This is what has been on my boat for 44 years, has never leaked. Made for securing the chain (you should have chain leader) through the deck and has a hook on the underside of the cover to hold the cover down and chain up.

you may want to consider some anti-seize on that shackle with the wire. you may never know when you want to take it apart

This is what I have on Wind Angel. I like the setup and it works well. Especially like the chain hook on the underside since I usually travel with the rode unattached and anchor tied down seperately. My issue is with an overly small stowage area underneath the cover.

Usually cable ties.

I admit I have used cable ties also but they often break and we shouldn't use them. Better to use wire. I've been thinking of using locktite. Locktite holds really well and can be undone with a wrench.

True. The reason I use cable ties is that they are easy to keep handy, are easy to use, and easy to cut loose when you are done.

Most of the time, what causes cable ties to break, is due to UV exposure and breakdown. Using black cable ties, and the fact that they are underwater, both help this from being as serious an issue. They can be cut and abraded, but not that easily.

Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

Walmart carries stainless steal cable ties. Of all places to find something like that for a reasonable price!! Kind of like a CV boot clamp on a car or Quad. They started carrying then in the last year. Garden Bender 11" Cable Tie, 100 lb, Stainless Steel, 10pk: TV & Video : Walmart.com

Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

So it's over a year later and one small improvement I settled on was to buy a nylon log carrier (about $12 on Amazon) to carry both the anchor and the rode.

I think this is a pretty decent idea which will make my life easier.

I also replaced the rode on my bigger anchor, which was over-sized by about 2 sizes on both chain and rode. And it wasn't even that long (150') yet was incredibly heavy and bulky.

With the new defender pre-made 1/2" 8-plait 215' rode, which is much more compact, I'll be able to move the bigger anchor and rode from the V-birth to the bilge under the cabin floor - in the log carrier. Not perfect but still pretty quick to retrieve , and far better than under the V-birth cushions.

The small anchor (which also has an incorrectly sized rode - but is too small), still lives in the cockpit locker.
