Re: Chain Snubber "tell tale"
I find the snubber is a good way to see if the anchor is set.. and I can sleep comfortably without getting up to check during the night.
Since I got the Rocna, I haven't dragged once in something like 1000+ anchorings, even to 60 knots in a blow that had lots of others scrambling.
As I've stated before, not being a fan of 'new gen' anchors, almost every time we dropped it for the first year or so, we'd dive on it. It rarely dragged its own length before it would turn and set.
We haven't gotten up to check our anchor during the night for over two years
Most of my sleepless nights are from some other guys' anchoring ability, not ours.
