Mark,
On Albertine, my Frances 34, we have 50 metres of chain and no warp.
I always put out at least 20 metres of chain and ensure the anchor is well bedded in.

Re: Anchor Chain

Thankyou Jon, think that has answered my question. When you look at the original spec it states only 10 metres of chain!

Re: Anchor Chain

Hi Mark,

I agree with Jon - Pippin (also a FPH 34) has about 50 metres of chain and no warp.  Of course what is on the end of it is what also counts.  Personally I swear by Rocna and find 15 kg adequate.  I also use a nylon rope snubber.

Best wishes
