Re: Consensus on "How" to Stop the Pin Coming Out of the Anchor Shackle?
While I certainly admire Monel for many applications, I've never had s/s safety
wire fail from corrosion
in all the years and thousands of anchorings that we've experienced. Not sure that the cost of Monel is justified for this application.
And for actually anchoring
, nylon zip ties simply don't cut it for me... far too easily snagged and broken when engaging the bottom with all its nasty sharp bits.
