Reply To: What size and length of anchor chain

Andrew Spruell

    Thanks for all your very helpful advice. On the basis of your comments  and having now read Vyv Cox’s excellent review on anchoring c-links ( thanks to Pietro for the link) and taken on board Paul’s comments about the weight I am going to go for an extra 30m of 10mm calibrated chain which I will join up using a Crosby  C-link.
    Like  Jason I would prefer to anchor in 5-10m of water but this was not always possible on our trip this year. Add in a 5-10m tide then 30m of chain is just not enough. Once again many thanks
