Do you know your windlass' pull force limit? (WPFL) Every boat
using chain, should know her anchor depth
Weight + Chain Weight/m X Depth
When you disregard the inequation by anchoring
in deeper waters you probably need to help your windlass
with your muscles.
The anchor weight is a constant value. But the chain load to windlass
is varying according to the length of the chain droped in to the water
. So keep in mind that chain size is important when you think about the max. depth you can anchor.
