The Basic rules of a good anchoring system
Never overlook the importance of every element in your anchoring system : it is only by selecting top quality elements & assembling them correctly together that you obtain a perfectly reliable anchoring.
Diameter must be generous & length at least 5 times the boat length (See table)
Opt for polyamide/nylon, which provides good abrasion & tension resistance, with a good stretching capacity (18 to 25%) to absorb the surges that waves impact on the anchor.

Like manila, nylon has excellent resistance to ultraviolet deterioration from sunlight, referred to as "U.V. stability".
