Two snubbers are fine to control the boat but you will loose all the elasticty for the anchor.

You can use longer lines, and you can even choose 14mm line instead of 16mm, right?

Not my experience. Depends on the snubber I suppose. If you choose the wrong material, size or length, then maybe. But the same is true for a single snubber.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
