How long of anchor line will fit in locker

Post by jhalb »

I'm getting ready to replace my rode for my Good windless on my 83, 10 Meter Express. I only have 60 feet currently. I'm looking at the 200 feet 5/8 rode. I wondering if this will fit or I need a shorter length? I don't use any chain.

Why no chain? I find a minimum of 1.5 times boat length a good safety feature to ensure a good hold in all conditions.

I have about 15' of chain which stays on the pulpit, my windlass is rope only too. I comfortably fit 100' of anchor line and a folding backup anchor and it's own line inside the locker.
