Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

Does anyone have a second anchor on the bow? if so, what length chain and rode do you have for that one? Both of Hinei'ni's anchors have chains and rode, but I haven't gotten up the energy to drop the anchors and pay out everything to figure out what I've got.

I have 150' 5/8" nylon with 80' of 5/16 chain in the SB and 150' 5"8 nylon with 35' 5/16 chain in the port. The nylon rode is stiff so sometimes I have to manually push it down, with better nylon rode it all would fit easily.

Put a traffic cone in the bottom of your locker and it won't pile up in a cone shape, fall over, and jam.

shanedennis We have a PSC 34 and had a dock mate last year with a PSC 31. We both carry a lot of chain. Without a lot of cruising gear the bows of both boats sit low in the water. I found that makes the boat's motion less comfortable. We compensated by leaving the forward water tank empty.

We are filling our boat with cruising gear this spring and expect the extra weight towards the stern will balance things out.

Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

Have a 1989 PSC 31. There is 100 feet HT 5/16 and 200 feet 8 plait rode on the starboard roller. Have a horizontal Muir electric windlass. Have to stop at times and use the original chain hole to stick my hand in to flop chain about. I have though that one could open the floor of the chain locker and put another floor in it to allow a straight drop of chain. If I were going on the trip you plan I would see about doing this. I did go to the 8 plait rode as it occupies less space.
On the port side I have 50 feet of 5/16 HT and about 250 feet of three strand rode.
Take a look into the storage space at the front on the V berth. You will see a lot of room there.

Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

Thanks Paul. That helps with the rode capacity. I intend using all chain rode for my primary anchor so curious mostly about how many feet of all chain will fit.

Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

I have 40 feet of chain and 300' of rope and it all fits in the locker with room to spare. I don't have to go below to load it in. I don't have a windlass and lower the rode down the pipe by hand. Occasionally have to give it a little poke with my hand to knock over the pile to make room for more.

If you have not already, check out

Voyage of the Swan - A Pacific Seacraft 34 is Selected, Outfitted and Cruised Offshore

The boat is a 34, but it is not that much different from a 31. There is a lot to be learned on the site.
