Anchor warp diameter

Is there a recommended warp/rode diameter related to displacement or footage.

Re: Anchor warp diameter

It is worth noting that the West Marine recommendations are based on only 30 knots of wind so really only a lunch hook rode.

ABYC has recommended rode sizes which are well thought out but I can't seem to find my link to them right now, maybe someone else has it.

Re: Anchor warp diameter

There is some ABYC data in this pdf and some other interesting things to consider.
Strength of Cleats

Made me rethink anchoring strategy.
