Anchor Lines & Chains

When it comes to selecting a type of anchor line (also referred to as anchor rode) the overwhelming most popular choice amongst boaters is Nylon. After that, your next choice is choosing between twisted anchor rope and braided anchor rope. The most significant difference is braided rope is slightly more flexible and stronger but is more difficult to splice than twisted rope.
