seaboater Posted July 20, 2012 Share Posted July 20, 2012 HI All, Seeking your expertise on the optimum length of rope to have on your mudweight to cover all eventualities. I've equipped my previous boats with copious amounts of chain; this new one has come with a short length of rope attached to the weight. I also have a spare mudweight which I may take with me for chucking out of the stern. This currently has no rope attached so I need to get one of the right length. From my seaboating days, more chain/warp scope was always better, but does this apply with mudweights where the principle is perhaps slightly different? I can see that many people have very short ropes, is this just economy, or is there a good reason? Your views appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
