Re: Install anchor chain markers
One other thing to consider: most folks anchor in water no less than 10 feet deep, right/ So the minimum they would deploy would be (to make the math easier, forget about the height of the bow) say 50 to 60 feet for starters. That's where I'd put the first chain marker. Putting one on at 30 feet when that would always be in the water is a waste of whatever material you're using.
Also, you should be able to figure out half of 30 feet, so I find that markers every ten feet are also a waste.
