Re: Not Getting the All-Chain Thing
THere is no doubt that there are more boats anchored with only line and a Danforth than any thing else in the US.......
No doubt? Prove it then. I don't believe there is a single example in our entire marina. Maybe there is an exception or two that I haven't noticed, but you have a long way to go to get to the most common.
I would agree it's common for little power boats (your description) to have a danforth and rope, but they would be the primary dragging concern in any anchorage around here, in my experience. Not that the danforth isn't a good anchor for certain conditions, but this argument fell flat.
If your objective is to get everyone to agree that the danforth is the best anchor, you must be delusional. That never happens on an internet forum. Ever.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
