Thoughts on this chain/line anchor rode combo?
I need a secondary anchor chain/line combo for my Passport 40. The approximate boat weight is 26,000lbs - 28,000lbs (at least according to the inaccurate scale on my marina's travel lift). Spec weight is approximately 22,000lbs, so we're somewhere in between. Windage is not too much.
Since this is a secondary rode to my current all-chain rode, I was curious if y'all think I could get away with using 200ft+ of 5/8" 8-strand plait spliced to 30ft of 5/16" G4. Normally I'd use 5/8" three strand, but for a secondary rode I thought, due to storage concerns, using a 5/8" plait would suffice.
