Another 8-Plait splice finished for our second anchor rode…other progress to report.

I’m getting good at this!

Thanks to Steve Romano for a healthy 140′ length of 8-Plait anchor line! It is now spliced to our 50′ old 3/8″ chain which together will be rode for our #2 storm anchor. Excellent backup! It all fits nicely into this milk crate… ready if needed. (8-Plait takes up half the storage space of similarly sized 3-strand laid rope.)

Also, our mechanic has finished his list, so we no longer have to “stay out of his way”.

Things are going to start happening now! I plan to actually work from the boat today!
