Re: Hurrican Prep - I found a swivel
IF I use a 10:1 scope for storm surge I assume that is from the anchors to the boat not just to the swivel? ( I can use chain from the 2 anchors to the swivel as I have 65' on each, but I will use 3/4" line from the tree to the swivel as that is what I have)
Should I use different dimensions lines from the swivel to the boat to provide shock relief (perhaps 3 strand nylon 1/2" line with 5/8" line backup that is longer)?
Now that I have more of a mooring setup (no longer fore and aft) maybe a line to one tree is sufficient (does the redundant tree line cause more potential for fouling than it is worth)?
I have a 25 lb CQR with short (10') of chain, would that be a good 'deadweight' to keep the swivel from moving around too much (or am I overthinking this)?
