I am in the process of replacing my primary anchor rode
to a larger and longer line/chain combination. Presently my anchor rode
is coiled in the bottom of my anchor locker
(Sabre 34), along with a second anchor.
Why haven't sailors developed an anchor rode spool to wind
the anchor rode around to save space while also having the rode immediately run out when needed? Am I missing something logical or practical?
I am considering making two anchor rode spools, one for my new primary anchor rode, and a second for the secondary (old) anchor rode. My thinking is that I should be able to store both in the anchor locker
and have either available for immediate use if needed.
Any thoughts would be appreciated,
