Just tested our two new FX-125 anchors - video

Well, we just got our 2 new FX-125 anchors. I'm planning to use these as part of a 3-anchor mooring system.

Inspired by an Anything-Sailing.com member's quick display of their forum burgee, we immediately did a little pull test to see what they would do.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

You did take the cats in for counseling after scaring them half to death, right?

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Looks like about a 10' drag before they set. Would you call that a "hard gravel" bottom?
