In Topic: anchoring presentation

14 August 2013 - 03:33 PM

Generally a good presentation.  Good imagery and I especially like the the idea of presenting the water color and wave pattern elements as key considerations.  Also,  the shore ties slides are very informative and not often taught.

 

BUT...   Scope....  According to Chapmans, the US Coast Guard and any other major source....  7:1 is preferred,  5:1 in a word case...  realizing of course that there might be circumstances where by even that level of scope may be difficult to attain...

 

Chain...  lots and lots of chain is a good thing....
