Patrickbryant- this is fantastic! My questions:
Is the anchoring load on the chock, the line looped to the snatch block, the snatch block itself, or the anchor rode and the cleat at the stern? Or a combination of those?
If a part of the load is born by the snatch block is it strong enough?
If a part of the load is on the stern cleat will this pull that part of the stern forward toward the anchor?
