Prepping project for my next trip to work on Encore

Posted By on October 20, 2014


An “easy to put off” project on any sailboat is marking rode or chain for the anchor. I added a purchased yellow tab to our previous boat Brenich’s nylon rode, but haven’t figured out how I was going to mark the all chain on Encore. Earlier this year I save a copy (testing iCloud Pages sharing link) from a post on the SimplySailingOnline blog and picked up a couple inexpensive 15-foot rolls of polyester-nylon webbing for $3.50. Unfortunately the quality was a bit lower than I expected, but as chain markers I’m hoping they will do the trick.
