Okay the second anchor, how improtant is that? Does everyone carry one or just if you are planning several nights out? The rode, How long do you make the chain portion? twelve ft., six ft. ? How much rode do you carry say for average anchoring. The boat came with 175tf. But that isn't enough for an emergency deep water anchorage. I am thinking one needs 600' is that overkill or am I underestimating? At least I knew what to call it. Thanks in advance!
