You can see my set up to attach a trip line or marker buoy line if required.

Scope = Done by Eye Baby! After decades boating and anchoring hundreds of times... depth from sounder plus bow height establishes bow nose to bottom length... Eye sight and "feel of the deal" establishes scope. For me anyway! No matter how the ratio may be stated in numbers

The normal anchor ratios stated are Length of rode over distance from bow roller to bottom (water depth + HT of bow above water)

So... 1:1 = vertical
5:1 = L of rode = 5x (depth + HT of bow)

Reading your posts is like watching a new release of Big Bang Theory. I just can't quite figure out which one is Sheldon, Leonard and Howard. You guys are way over my head.

Me too.

But with some real world experience now I think I've figured this out. Mud is the predominant bottom on the Chesapeake so a Fortress is a good choice if adjusted for mud. I don't set the anchor hard, just idle reverse on one engine. When retrieving I get the rode vertical and just let the boat and anchor work their way loose, maybe a minute or so.

I've also found not as much scope is needed with this anchor in mud. That's nice in a crowded anchorage.
