It maybe, particularly if the anchor winch is in "Fail Mode" (History?)

Charts Updated

I normally wait until April to update my charts, but Navionics had a 1/2 off sale until the end of February. So I updated all 3 of my charts online.

Good luck with your cruising.
I tried the coloured zip ties a few years ago. So far, after 3 or 4 years (could even be 5) they still look like new. No UV in my anchor locker, so the only way they are going to fail is if I were to anchor to exactly the same zip tie all summer long and allow that one to get exposed to the sun enough to deteriorate. Being in BC waters, we all know that isn't ever going to happen.
I especially like seeing the one that tells me the anchor is just emerging from the water, so I can prepare for it landing on the bow roller.

My anchor line is nylon and the fathoms are marked with inserted tags reflecting the depth. Neat and they stay put, however the downside is when they are coming aboard via the winch head, they wrap the line on the spool coming to a stop. I can live with it, but couldn't miss the chance to bitch.

I have 550 ft of chain. The last 200 feet at the end of the chain is all red. Alerts you that there is no more chain.
Wow.
While in Ireland 3 years ago, I did the same pattern, orange and black.

Great minds think a like. 😁

I'm thinking of combining my two rodes:
Primary with 400 ft chain
Secondary with 50 ft chain 250 nylon rode.
My stern anchor has 10 ft chain, 200 ft nylon. I want to leave that alone.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the heads up.

We are headed back to Sitka again. The plan is to leave Anacortes the first week in May. New to us boat this year. Hopefully Helen Marie is sold.

ASD, I use the same dialectric geese on my power cord ends. Regarding the cords, you use acetone to clean those? No issues with the fluid degrading them?

He watched me clean my cords, both the 50 and 30 amp cords this summer. Done it this way last 4 years with no apparent degradation. The acetone evaporates pretty darn fast. After cleaning, I spray down with heavy coat of WD40 and wipe down again a few hours later with a clean cloth. They look almost brand new.
