• Anchor Rode Marking

    It is difficult to mark a rope anchor rode with something that last and is visible in the daytime and at night. Here is a quick video showing an inexpensive yet novel idea using one of these fluorescent orange safety vest.

      Your welcome, it is very easy to do and works really well. I am on year 2 using this method.

      This is a great idea in theory, but the video shows no details of how this is constructed. I have no idea how to weave this into my rode as the author suggests. My rode is store bought and I can't (nor would I try) to disassemble it.

      As presented, not very useful or practical unless you have some very specific skills.

      It's on a 3 strand rode and just weaved thru the rode in no specific pattern, there are several ways it can be done some even whip the ends.

      if your rode is plaited you won't be able to do this.
