thanks for the info. i've been wanting to get one these setups for a while now, and think i will this week. what's a good anchor buoy to buy? i've looked at boaters world and west marine and this one looks to be about the right size: http://www.boatersworld.com/product/367040581msk.htm
is there something better, maybe a little smaller?
also, one last question i'm not sure i'm understanding the necessity for the loops in the lines. and someone in that other thread mentions clips. i've read it like 3 times, but i must be dense today.
