  • Anchor & Rode Needs

    I was thinking a 13-14lb danforth would be about right for a 23' (about 2500lbs).

    Would 3/8" rode suffice, or do you think I need 1/2"?

    the 13-14 will be O.K., but just put plenty of chain, Id go with about 10ft of 5/8 galvanized. the 3/8 rode will also suffice.

    personally, i use a #20 super hooker with 10ft of 5/8 chain on 1/2 nylon. ive had this same anchor on 2 other large boats, 26 and 30ft.

    the chain becomes critically important as the water gets very deep, 175+ft. i may add a second 10ft shot if im going over 200ft or if there is lots of current.

        If you want to spend a "little exter" on line - go to a 7/16 dia nylon instead of the 3/8. It will gain you a little more "working load" and not get you into the higher price of 1/2 inch line. The only thing about the 7/16 is sometimes it will need to be ordered special and probably need to buy a 600 ft spool. Worth considering??

          Actually, I may have found a great deal on 1/2" line and a danforth, but if that doesnt come through I'll certainly look into that.
