Nor'Sea 27 Newsletter

sprit. For anyone thinking about all that rode, it's about ALL that will fit in the chain locker.

The other two anchors got 25 foot of HT and 150 foot of 3 strand inch line. They -(with rode) are kept aft.

Now the Mr. Hess genius! The weight of the forward ground tackle is almost equal to the weight of the engine fuel and water kept aft! Balance!

And the part about loving a 27 foot boat.  Look at the difference in cost. I have a friend who has also just replaced his ground tackle.  He has an Alajuela 38.

A difference of $840.00. About one month of cruising kitty money.

By the way, After getting all that chain to the boat we have decided that a windless in definitely on our "must have" list!
