Re: Swivel or Shackle
In the 1980’s and 1990’s I never used a swivel.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Then in 2006 I started to use one thinking it an improvement, but gradually I have now come to the conclusion that they do nothing very useful and are a point of failure in an anchor system.
My Amel supplied Wasi anchor has been demoted to be a second anchor, this came with the special Wasi swivel. I have left it for now but frankly I do not trust a stainless fitting.
My newish Spade is the primary anchor with an extra strong galvanised shackle to the chain. No problem with twisting, slides nicely over the bow.
So in conclusion I have gone full circle on this issue.
