Re: Chain Snubber "tell tale"

It seems that every time you anchor, this snubber is wearing on the snub line in places you can't see.
Any more elasticity in our snub line would just create more movement of the boat. I can't for the life of me see any improvement on a properly sized nylon spring line with chafe gear at the boat and a proper chain hook in the chain.
KISS has always been considered a pretty good idea around boats.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
