It was a big mistake to chu k the whole thing overboard
. I knew anchors weren't cheap
, but I had another one, and lost
my least favorite of the two. I had thought the chain would cost ~$250 to replace. At the time conditions were pretty rough and I just wanted to get out of there quick.
I called divers but they quoted $1000. I went out with a rope
and 100 pound strength magnet but had no luck. I monitored craigslist and just picked up 250' of chain and a 66pound bruce anchor for $300.
Turns out it was only a $300 lesson after all.
I'm glad the lesson is over. It will be one I will not make again.
