Boat Anchor Chain & Shackles
Anchoring a boat is an important part of any boating excursion. Knowing how to do it properly and having the right equipment ensures a safe outing for the captain and his passengers. Anchoring works to secure the vessels and keep them stable in the water. Whether you are anchoring for the night or just enjoying some time swimming you want to make sure that your vessel is secure and having the right anchor chains and anchor shackles will help.
Anchoring can seem like an intimidating task but the process is really quite simple. You will want to pick a location to anchor and make sure that your anchor chains and ropes are long enough to reach the bottom and the anchor shackles are strong enough. Dropping anchor in water too deep will not work. After you have dropped your anchor, you will want to make sure it is secure on the bottom. You can do this by reversing the boat so that it digs into the seabed and the boat is secure. Your anchor chain and shackles will need to be able to withstand the conditions of rough water and wind to make sure your vessel stays secure.
