I have an 1968 Morgan classic
yawl 41 weighing in at 40,000# give or take. We are in the process of bringing this old girl back to life after a decade of sitting on the hard
and in a slip. We plan on doing most of our sailing on the west coast
and will rarely be in water
over 50'. The boat
now has two plow anchors with a whole lot of chain on both anchors, the windless is broken and i am thinking about doing without it and convert one of the anchors to rope
and raising it by hand (blessed with a strong back and a weak mind). The best i can figure is200' of 5/8 nylon with maybe 20 feet of 3/8 chain. What do you think? should i go to 3/4 inch?
Is braid or 3 strand the best way to go? how long? Prices very a lot, is nylon the best choice? will be mostly anchoring
in fairly shallow water
most likely 20 foot or so. You guys on here have a tons of experience and i would appreciate your thoughts, thanks.
