Re: Poll - Secondary Anchor Rodes

I dont have a secondary anchor because I dont think they are useful.

My main anchor is a Delta with 100 meters 10mm chain, thats 330 feet

Kedge anchor, Brittany (!) with 15 meters chain, 40 meters(?) rope. Last time I saw it was months ago, last time I used it was 2 years and 20,000nms ago...

Re: Poll - Secondary Anchor Rodes

Primary 45kg Ultra Anchor with 100 meters of 1/2 inch (12mm) chain & snubber. The boat isn't going anywhere with that set up. Secondary, a Fortress 55 with 10 ft of chain and 100 ft of 1.5 inch heavy rope. Third, a 75 pound Lewmar CQR in the wings and 12 kg Ultra for the stern.

If the primary gets stuck, I've got the scuba gear to go down and fetch it.
