Re: Windlass technique: use messenger/snubber line with chain?
Is the swivel needed at all? Is the issue related to twist caused by putting tension on three-strand rode?
Also, why did you use double-braid for rode? I always thought that three-strand had more stretch, thus providing shock absorption.
