Thanks for your advice but it was aparently a poor attempt at sarcasim on my part.. By the way I have a 53lb anchor for an 18,000 lb boat and plenty of chain too, so again, thanks for your opinion on my equipment and technique but I feel fine about it.

So that's what they mean by a 'Lunch Hook'... out for lunch..

You can't beat a people up for 75 years and have them say.. "I Love You.. ".
