The problem of 'letting out more chain ' , bridle on and Wind
powerful !. The idea of using cleats
and long bridle arms has merit but if I were ' caught bending '. i'd probably need , say 50 feet or more of chain . Hopefully , this would be a very rare moment , so in emergency
,I would cut the bridle loose and then rig an emergency
bridle , chain hook and a pair of Nylon lines. That would be the last resort before unbolting the chain and , hopefully , motoring away. I think that to have a plan is like having insurance
- probably never need it if you've got it !
