Re: Totally inadequate chain

The last time I commented on a tread like this all my replies were pulled off, at least I was not banished from the site I think I'm on the double secret probation list. So that is a heck of an anchor there, chain seems reasonable to me.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Am I the only person who can't see this picture?

I'd really like to weigh in on such a serious issue.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Well guys, that shot is taken from Alki Point here in Seattle, so I happen to know that particular ground tackle very well....very, very, well. In fact, I've had the opportunity to touch it, running my fingers across every subtle curve....wallowing in all that is the beauty these fine specimens have to offer, and only a sailor could appreciate. But as I started to slip ever deeper into an altered state, I was awoken by the distant horn of the Ferry Kitsap, and quickly realized I had betrayed my own ground tackle. I left ashamed and guilt ridden, never to return again...
