your feet when working with lengthy line or chain. Im going ti rrpeat that later.Im in process off replacing some anchor gear
44 with 120' of 5/16. Gets 200' of 3/8 g4 and 220' of deep six braid including the tie off in the anchor locker
. Tie off is 5/16 double braid. Putting an eye splice in six plait deep six sucks. Next time I'll pay to have it done. Next time I'll use good 3 strand and nit pay to have the splice. I thunk I will like the way this stuff lays back into the locker but what a pain to splice. Why did I go 3/8 on the chain. I believe in centenary effect. My 5/16 has a spot near mid point that is rusty. Most is good but I hate worrying. Weight can be an issue. This is 325 lbs of chain nit only is it near the bow it's heavy. This could make some operation like clearing a snag or fouled anchor
more difficult . Never had a problem with snubbers. I've made some new ones thus year from my old chain plates.
twhile pulling all this line and chain aboard I remember something that is not well taught. Never lift
your feet. Shuffle through the deck
but never lift your feet when working with lengthy lines or chain. Fishermen know thus but it's not prevalent in the sailing world .
