interesting photos from Jedi, and nice comments from all.
I'm making a nice anchor
collection (i've done with crystal animal / cactus collections) -
No1 is a heavy Bruce, with 50m x 10mm short link chain + 30m 20mm nylon. the snubber/swivel is a handy hook which slots on to the SLC, and is rigged with nylon . i guess i may splice on some chain above the water
to avoid heat issues - or perhaps some Dyneema
if i can splice it on. . i like the hook snubber because it adds to the rode
, but doesn't replace it.
incidentally, does anyone know a good tutorial for splicing the nylon to the chain? i am new to splicing and this is probably not the best task to start learning
ps the other anchors are 2) a darn heavy plow with 30m SLC + 50m nylon and
3) a darn heavy admiralty with 20m SLC + 30m nylon.
I like a very long length rode (even if it is just 20 SLC / 80 nylon ) becusae i figure that if the yacht were being driven on to a lee shore, chucking the best anchor out on an incredibly long rode would give a chance of arresting progress before literally hitting the coast?
thanks for reading
