Hope I don't run over it. That would be a quick stop.

no worse than the crab and ghost crab floats all over the place...plus as soon as possible I'd be back for it...the whole idea of the floating line.

All chain rode and a 45 lb CQR + happy hour watching land marks that do not move = sound nights sleep.

The question was,

>Part of the dilemma revolves around how much chain I need in a worse case scenario storm maybe in the Caribbean.<

And my answer is 3/8 chain would be useless in most hurricanes.

Hurricane gear is special, and specific to the loads involved , not just longer O nite gear.

All of your anchors are too small, the wrong kind and you don't have enough chain.

Now let's talk about guns!
