Re: Chain Snubber "tell tale"

Interesting approach. I can see and feel my snubbers stretch out under load, but I can see how the rubber link would be an easy visible marker.

I always set my anchor on straight chain only. I only add in the snubber at the end, after the anchor is set and well dug in. Not saying the other way isnít fine, but without the snubber on it is absolutely clear when the anchor is holding as the chain goes straight and hard.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
