    More importantly what type of anchor should be deployed at the end of the chain under the round thing?

    To save time, you are all wrong.

    Though that's an arrangement which was more popular among some old school Italian builders - not very common these days.
    here is a pic of that other forum boat with anker ball in place,
    we alway's deploy the anker ball at anker, (contrary to many other boaters)
    we have a system with a thin rope in a loop, to raise or lower the ball (similar like a flag)

    Surely you mean the "Executive" branch, John!!
    Indeed! The ‘X’ branch or ‘chosen race’ as they sometimes prefer to be called.

    Seems to me that an anchor ball serves two functions: to indicate that a vessel isnít underway and where its chain might be likely to be.

    As such, a visible location above the pointy end would seem optimal.

    Play d'eau also has a floaty marker connected to the anchor to mark where it is.
    These are the voyages of Play d'eau....www.playdeau.com
