Re: Best suggestion for adding 100 lbs to the anchor locker
Whether or not you should add more chain depends on your intended use of the boat. Do you need it to anchor around SF Bay? Are you heading out of the bay?
If you decide not to add chain, a better idea might be to remove all the weight you can from the lazarette and stern. We tend to accumulate a lot of crap on a boat we don't really need. We'll sail faster and have an easier time getting to what we do need if we clean our boats out yearly. I'm going to do mine tomorrow, just as soon as I launch!
