how will the extra lb affect sailing?

35lb anchor with 60ft chain and 300ft line in the bow of a 24ft 6000lb boat.

The line is not too heavy, really just the chain and anchor weight to worry about. Before you leave there will be other weights as well. Just make sure the boat is evenly loaded. At sea the anchor could be moved aft.

Brian the more I read the less interested in having my anchor gear up front, it seems way more comfortable to anchor and retrive from the safty of a cockpit. and your ready to go a little faster.

the anchor locker is righ beside my transom, while retriving I simply tose the line inn the locker and the chain inn a milk crate as sugested before, then the crate and anchor fits nicely in the locker on top of line.
keeping my bow cealed without any water possibly entering from a chain pipe is more apealing to me.
This boat realy needs to be seaworthy

cheers

What size chain? 1/4" probably won't matter much...but 5/16" chain will. There's a significant weight difference between the two. Also, how is your anchor locker setup? Does it leave the rode in the very front of th he boat?? If so, then you're probably going to hobby horse a bit with that much weight forward.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
