No dragging for me! Once I lay this all chain rode down nothing, no stinking hurricane, not even a tsunami is going to budge old Badger!!

Now...how to get it all aboard?

Yup the rode surely won't be needing an anchor .....

Unless you're in a small salt chuck that are so numerous up there.
How big is your anchor locker?

Since we have a Sundowner Tug, we thought to ourselves, "Hey, why don't we chuck all this chain into an old herring punt and tow it like a barge?"

Works like a hot-damn and we put a diving board and slide on the punt too. We sure make a grand entrance into anchorages judging by all the stares and people pointing at us.

ummm, Murray it looks like you bought the wrong size!!!!


Just kidding. Get a bunch of friends to bring their wheel barrows down to the dock and form a "chain gang".

Buy it? I didn't buy it!

The marina has been dragging its ass about putting in the new floating breakwater for about a year and this mooring chain was laying around so long a guy starts to think to himself, "Well, if they aren't going to use it, I may as well put it to good use".

I tell you though, when it runs over the aluminum herring punt gunwale in deep water anchorages like Bishop Bay Hot Springs it echos off the mountainsides like rolling thunder for a couple minutes after the last of it hits the bottom!

The only true part in this thread so far was the bit about the mooring chains for the marinas floating breakwater...the marina was sure bouncing a couple days ago. The one they're working on now looks pretty robust, but our breakwaters keep braking! Rock would be nice but there's a steeply sloping glaciomarine clay and mud bottom...
