Depends....is the mushroom anchor plastic coated, and how many feet of Walmart rode? :D

Don't forget guys..
 
It's the downward pressure of the water on the rode that actually holds the boat! So I vote for the plastic coated mushroom so it won't mar your decks. Perhaps we could build a, one off, plastic coated cynder block for our buddy Solent???

Remember this thread....

Rock and rope. It is much cheaper and can be replaced anywhere in the world. We really do need to shut down this thread.

CAM!! CAM!! Quit messing around and take care of this thread!!

Yes, but with all the choices of rock types out there, it's very confusing to me. Slate? Granite? Marble (only if you have an Oyster)? Help!
