I'd rather be sailing
I'd be interested in your thoughts on this... An "improved" method of Bahamian Moor is detailed in this post - http://www.sailnet.com/forums/miscellaneous/25495-better-bahamian-moor.html - which uses a snatch block down low to minimize the threat of wrapping your secondary rode around your keel. I have a spare Ronstan RF6721 block (https://store.catsailor.com/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=416&idproduct=10799) which "deforms" at 4000lbs. Our secondary anchor rode is 1/2" line with 20' of 5/16" chain. I have NO CLUE as to the loads that would be placed on the snatch block. Any thoughts on whether this particular block might work for this function? Passport 40, probably weighing about 28,000lbs or so. Our primary anchor is a Rocna 25kg with an all chain 5/16" rode. The secondary is a Fortress FX23. Thoughts?
