    Down by the head

    Boot topping is at the waterline forward and 4-6 inches above WL at the rudder. I have 20ft of 3/8 on one anchor which I increased form 13 ft of 5/16. The other is a smaller anchor which I have not measured the chain but I expect to be smaller. I'll have a look in there today to make sure...
