Re: What if No-Chain?

Minne,

My thought on this was more for the lower wind speed range where some of the rope might be on the bottom per say. The floating chaff guard that PD mentions, should do the same thing per say.

Then as you mention, if at 5 knots one is for the most part pulling on the anchor, then the float should not be an issue at this point. Hopefully the float will not be as mentioned, lowering the scope. My hope with the float, is it will not raise straight up, but just enough to get the line off the ground........

One may or may not know how well it is working, based on currents, wind,.........might be more studying than worth it.

Its a thought that is different.
