Re: What if No-Chain?
I have often thought of using a flat rope nylon webbing rode, for space and weight saving. The cost is significantly more than the nylon double braid I use now with a fortress anchor for my 20ft 3,500lb boat on the mud and sand bottom of the Delaware and Chesapeake.
I have never had a dragging problem and rarely anchor in more than 20 ft depth in the Delaware River and Bay with its large tidal current range.
