OK we have a problem. Our anchor chain is just not going work out any more. We have been keeping a measurement log and it is just gotten too thin in places. We were hooping to get this season from it. Not so. There is probably about 100' that needs to be discarded. We have in the past cut off some from the chain. This summer we cut 5' from the anchor back as it was worn. So we have about 185' of 3\8 3B chain. Another 125' of three strand rode spliced o to that. We wil go into the Grand Isla Navidad Resort Marina for a day to string out the chain onto the dock and cut out the bad part.
We will need a utility cleat in the anchor looker of our 36' Islander Freeport sail boat for the 8 plat rode we will be using.Of course there is no where o purchase oe so we will "brrow" ne from one of the stays. We have a smaler one we can use in it's place untill we can replace it with a new one.
