Re: Totally inadequate chain

I don't know about inadequate, but that 'chain' needs to be stripped and galvanized.
I hear hot dip is better.

Lessons learned are opportunities earned.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Not sure that anchor is real, do they come that big naturally?

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Re: Totally inadequate chain

All that weight in the bow is going to make her bow down and will probably lead to hogging over time. It's a matter of scale.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

I don't know about the chain, but the flukes.....just a tad oversized for an anchor like that, don't you think?

Re: Totally inadequate chain

I know what? I think those old style anchors had to be upgraded with their own P.F.D.'s

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Well, the anchor was smaller before she sat on it.
