Finished washing and marked up the anchor rode

Beginning of August 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay Mexico

Hot day and most of it spent on anchor rode.

Debbie mad a couple custom markers because the ones we bought went to 270' and we have 375' of rone.

 The material we got from the dumpster, or it was on it's way. It was by a trash can. The material was covering a bladder that was not any good. We stripped the material from the bladder and are using some of it to make a new dinghy seat cushion with foam we got from to old live vests that came with our used kayak.

 New BBB Acco chain, made in with our washed up 8 plat Lewmar line and all marked up and ready to go cruising again!

In the chain locker and ready to go. We did not connect it to the 45 lb CQR as this way is stays dry and protected from rust, and dampness for hurricane season. 

 Acco chain is made by Peerless Chain in Winona, Minnesota USA

This does pile a little high so it might stalagmite up under the windliness when retrieving it. This would make the chain start kicking it's self out of the gypsy. If so we will remove the emergency rode form underneath this one and store it in the bilge.
