Anchoring (sort of)
Every once in a while you might find yourself in a position where ground tackle might not offer you the holding power you need. In that case it's nice to have about 600 feet of poly-pro aboard so you can tie your bow off to a tree and your stern to a small island like you see in the pictures above, taken last November when I sailed aboard the Alaska Eagle through the fjords of Chile. Of course the other 99.9% of the time you'll be using chain and line to keep you put, and we've still got the best prices in town. In fact we might be the only place in town that can splice your rode and chain for you right in the store.
