The chain is very important Mick
Its what helps make the Anchor work properly.
Balanceing the Anchor Warp and Chain is important,when you REALLY need to Throw the Pin in a tight spot....it's too late to experiment!!
Try a chain on its own on Sand if you think it's the main thing that holds you fast
An anchor warp as well as it being strong...it's a good idea to have a good bit of stretch in it,as it helps absorb the shock in Big Sea.
