We have recently uploaded an article by SV Spirit of Argo with some additional suggestions by us that maybe of interest to the group.
I am sure we will get bashed as this method doesn't work
, not enough holding power, chain should be on the bottom, etc etc. But I will tell you we have used this method in excess of 400 nights at anchor
in various atolls in the Tuamotus French Polynesia
and it does work
. Not only have we sat out some drafty conditions (in excess of 45 knots) but we feel its the only way to safely protect the coral
The most important thing to take away from this discussion is how can we as a sailing community protect coral
At the bottom of the French Polynesia
list is the article "Floating your chain in Coral"
