Hi all

Ok having been caught out with shop advice (ie get the fool to overspend) on how heavy a mudweight should be for Cappy, I thought this time I'll ask the experts....you guys.

What weight weight would I need for a tender? Size is 3mx1.4m
I was thinking only summat light enough to hold in good weather.

Would a grappling type anchor be more suited? Figure they fold up and wouldn't take much space, their cheap (i like that word but not as much as free) but wasn't sure of their holding property in mud / silt.

Any advice, as always, gratefully received,



regards

About  a 3kg folding grapnell and six feet of 1/4" chain to about 30' of rode kept in a little canvas bag ready to deploy should do nicely for most situations you are likely to encounter on the Broads (I include north & south), handy for fixing to some land structures too if no handy posts, cleats, branches etc are available. This is not just for mooring but may prove a boon in an emergency.
Or you could just get a 6lb mudweight & a bit of old rope if only for use on the quiter northern stretches. Smile
