      Anchor Rodes

      Anchor Rodes are the line connecting your boat to the anchor- which means when yours are frayed, you need to replace them with the best and strongest rodes possible. That’s no problem when you shop with us. Wholesale Marine only stocks quality products like the rodes from Lewmar and Powerwinch which are in stock now.

      Is it Time to Replace Your anchor Rode?

      How much rope do you need? It is not enough to just measure the line you are replacing. Anchor rodes are made from different materials and each has different properties to consider. When selecting rope, nylon rope is the clear favorite because of its strength, elasticity, and low cost. There are two rules of thumb when deciding how much and what type of rope: 1. You should have 8 feet of rope for every 1 foot of water you will be anchoring in. 2. Your rope should have 1/8" of rope diameter for every 9' of boat.

      What about chain? How much is too little and how much is just right? Along with the rope, you should also have a smaller amount of chain between the rope and the anchor. For most boaters, 10 to 30 feet of chain will suffice. For boaters anchoring in extreme conditions for extended periods of time, you will want about 1 foot of chain for every 6 feet of rope. That is so the rope will create the optimal angle between the rode and the seabed. The advantage is quite small and for most boaters isn't enough to justify the extra weight that you'll need to haul in. So for most boaters, 10 to 30 feet of chain will be more than enough.
