    Crystaliner 33 Repower

    Anchor rigging question

    25’ of chain is not a lot. Some on here will say way more but u should add 10’ to your boat length. I assume your not on a 15’ boat

    Stardrag vs Daiwa SAGLD35 2SPD Saltiga LD Lever Drag

    I have a bunch and have had to send 2 lever drags in cuz they wouldn’t engage. Star drags have not had any issues. My first 30 star I found on the bottom of the ocean and it still works great!
