new anchor chain

I’d gone to the yard to pick up my 300′ of chain and they said they were going to have to forklift it over. Nonsense! I brought my dock cart, Shannon and I just piled it in there and I was on my merry way. Thankfully it was high tide so the ramp to the docks wasn’t too steep (that could have gotten ugly!).

It was fairly easy to trade out the 5′ of chain and rode that was there for the 300′ of chain that’s now there. Now I just need an anchor that’s not bent and to clean up the windlass a little bit.┬áThankfully there’s still plenty of waterline, so that’s good! Onward ho to the next projects, matey.
