Re: Totally inadequate chain

I know this is Sailnet and all, but re: the OP, I'm gonna suggest this is the perfect place for a motorboat.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

(sigh)

I wish installing a new anchor was as easy as buying new fenders. I'd be toting an anchor with a roller skate at the end so it wouldn't gouge the deck when I moved it.

Man, I love new fenders. Nothing dresses up a boat like nice, fresh fenders.

Re: Totally inadequate chain

Anchor is too big for the chain... among other things....

Re: Totally inadequate chain

The thing about these types of anchors is not the size but the holding. Of course, size helps with that.

Good holding in a variety of situations is optimal.
