It did impress the RNLI seacheck chap when he surveyed the boat.

He said what type of anchor do you use.... I went, well....

The pay off, is that it is not so quick and easy to deploy, and it all needs to be tidy. It only goes in one way, and I had to cut an inch off each end of the danforth, but it still lies flat on the sea bed.
