My boat, #675, a Lombard Zero, came with a sea anchor.  But the boat has no mooring cleats, so I presume that the line for the sea anchor would get tied off to the stanchions.  Are the stanchions strong enough to hold a sea anchor?

On a side note, has anyone in a mini had to deploy a sea anchor?  Don't hear about it read about it in accounts of the races.

Thanks,
Tim Seifert

Hi Tim,

I would not use the stanchions or any mooring cleats even if you had them - instead make a bridle that will fit around the chain plates for the running backstays.
