i know it aint chain, but ive used it for the last 2 seasons, does a great job and saves dragging chain over the tubes, especially WHITE tubes

I remember watching a TV programme about big ships and the rigger said you don't tie the anchor to the boat, you tie the boat to the anchor!!!

Only a play on words, but with great meaning....

I use a 7.5kg CQR with 20m of 8mm chain and 2x50m lengths or 12mm rope. This combination is sufficient to hold my boat at MSM during full flood.

Yep I have a little 1kg one I have had my SR4 on it and 2 Boston whalers too should have seen their faces when I pulled up the hook

Well Ive been doing a bit of research and come up with some ideas.

I was thinking that the RIB is 9m, so Id go for a 14kg anchor. With 8mm chain spliced to the rope.

Say I anchor in 20m max depth at a ratio of 1:5, then I need 20m of chain and 80 rope. Given Im diving in the Med, steady weather, no tides and ony when the weather is good, that should do me fine.

8mm chain is 30kg for 20m, I think.

It may be overkill, but I dont want to come back from a dive and find the boat has gone.

Have I got the sums right ?

your boat certainly wont move with all that, but unless you have a windlass on board you will end up with arms like popeye after pulling up all that weight!
