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...

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Let this be a lesson to all you next gen anchor zealots. The ladies like old school.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman

Re: Totally inadequate chain

How do you steer this boat?

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!
