Re: I had to cut away my anchor :(

Google "Danforth anchor chocks". Laying flat, it does take space on the foredeck of my 28-footer, but it holds the anchor securely and at-the-ready for quick deployment.

Stumble. Are you saying wire stretches more than the typical line one might use for a cruising boat halyard? I find that hard to accept.
