Hi all, just some input regarding loading. A bridle between the aft cleats either side of the stern will not divide the load as the load will be applied to each side as the boat swings. secondly the use of a non stretch cord like dyneema in a shock loading situation is not good and will multiply the loads applied to what ever anchor point you are using, be it cleats or winches. As with snubbers to anchor chains, laid nylon is the best, its stretch will take the shock loads and absorb them preventing those being applied to the anchor point. Use anti chafe where needed.
