As mentioned, we were advised by people we know with a lot of anchoring experience to lower the chain grab at least 10 feet below the surface and more if any kind of wind is anticipated. The loop of line we let down between the pulpit and the chain grab hangs down a good 10 feet below the chain grab and I sometimes let it out more than that. The more the heavier.

I use mine the same way Marin talks about. Sometimes I anchor in 7 to 8 ft of water then I use less if I am not expecting a blow.

We always anchor in 25 feet of water or more. So there is plenty of depth for the process we use. We have never had to anchor in less than 25 feet of water.
