I'm doing the math here.
Three rodes. The lengths of chain, respectively, are: 450 + 300 + 200 feet, for a total of 950' of chain. 3/8ths inch chain averages around 1.7 lbs per foot. That's 1,530 pounds of chain in a 33' boat. Switching to metric, THAT'S ALMOST 700 KILOS OF CHAIN IN A 3,500 KILO BOAT.
Ahem. Perhaps the word "goofy" wasn't strong enough.
cruising is entirely about showing up--in boat shoes.
