Alain Fraysee "Tuning an Anchor Rode"

Lizzy gave us a link on Rocna anchors which led me to another link on their website written by a French sailor named Alain Fraysee on "Tuning An Anchor Rode."

It is very well written and brought me to a clearer understanding of how forces I did not clearly understand cause the ordinary sailor to underestimate the forces in effect by sometimes a factor of 2x to 3x.

If you have already read his stuff please excuse my excitement. I just think it is good stuff. He gave me a better idea of difference between mono versus multi vs trawler windage. Sizing of different components on the rode, snubber, anchors...How to think about currents, wind, and sea state versus my current understanding. Just really liked his science and mentality documentation.
