  1. The shackle is installed backward at the anchor, when the boat swings at anchor the shackle will not adjust as it would if it was installed properly. Do your own research with shackle company videos.

  2. I would try something different with the end if that tie wire! Someone who isn't aware of it might really hurt themselves! Maybe fold in half like bunny ears then twist, just to help with that end. I'm only speaking from getting stabbed with tire wire on the job multiple times from someone carelessly cutting or not banging the twist out of reach. Great video straight to the point!

  3. Thank you for using a Safety Wire ! Also where is your Robe Bag to put your Chain and Anchor in ? Also check out the Anchor Videos on putting the "U" of the shackle on the Anchor (and not the chain) and also weave an Eye Splice of the Rope to the Chain. (also big boat stores sell the chain and rope already connected) This basic info will help when you get Boating Fever (not as bad as Golfing !) tjl

  4. Great until u snag. I've seen a few anchors lost like this. It's best to hook on bottom first and use a break point for the top.
