no, nobody else around to swipe it
and I do have a mile of chain. that was one of the big considerations, the crew (generally wife and kids) has to haul this up.
I'll go with the bigger anchor. Hopefully it fits.
Yes, I do scuba dive but I much prefer freediving. Hunting on scuba feels very unsporting after freediving. No I can't freedive to 75', we could just see that far, part of the reason I didn't get suited up and go look for it. I can work 20-30' depths for long enough but I am by no means a great freediver but I still enjoy it tremendously.
So the the next question is anchor rigging. The delta and other plows you can shackle at the plow end and connect with a break away on the shank so if it gets stuck and you yank hard enough it self releases, or that's the theory. anybody rig theirs that way? what do you use on the shank end? zip tie or seizing wire?
