Re: What if No-Chain?

pd,

The other thing I would probably do....

Being as the line with the chaff guard could/would be damaged at some point in time. I would make this maybe 10-20' section be replaceable via shackles at either end. Then have appropriate 3 strand, or I would probably go with one of the 8 plait mega braid style lines next time I need to buy line. Then a section of the dynema or equal with the chaff guard, then a one up sized anchor than I might need generally speaking. My boat for a 40 knot breeze is a 15-20 lb anchor. I would get a 20-25 lb anchor. unless of course we are talking race/throwable anchors, then stick with the 6-10 lb anchor relm. This is only good to around 20 knots or wind strength.
