Old Rusty & Jumping The Gypsy – Replacing Our Anchor Chain
by Jason and Vicki Wynn
We moved aboard a sailboat because we wanted to travel and live around the world. We thrive on the freedom to move, so we spend most of our nights at anchor. If we want to sleep like babies, and not lie awake twitching like nervous nellies, we must trust our anchoring set up. Lately, our trust has been wavering.
Jason will explain why in the video but the short story is: we thought the issue was the windlass. Turns out our anchor chain might be the culprit. Time to bust out a few boat bucks, a pair of gloves and some elbow grease. Read more and watch the video.
