How long a rode?

I''m just adding to the previous lot........having survived Floyd in Abaco in 150mph plus with a 5'' tide surge and 5'' white caps only 50% of 15 boats came through. Mine survived on 3 anchors all with 50'' of 3/4 chain on 200'' of rode. The best anchor has always been the Delta quickset (one size over the boat recom''). I have no windlass and carry 5 different in all - the Danforths nearly always drag unless 10:1 is payed out. The CQR (plough) is a bitch to raise at 45lb + the chain in deep water. I was out for 22 months and seemed to be able to handle most bottoms. Expansion by request.
Mike
