You may remember the marking of the anchor chain from last summer, when Brock and I dragged out the whole thing to accurately measure it. At that time, we strategically painted links to mark how much chain was out. I thought it was a good idea.

Turns out, paint doesn’t last, especially when you’re using the boat and anchor system as much as we do. We then tried yellow zip ties on the links. Which was an improvement, but not as visible as I would have liked.

Enter Rescue Tape.
It’s my theory that everyone has their “thing” that they fix things with. For some people, it’s duct tape. For my ex-husband, it was caulk. Mine? Silicone tape that sticks only to itself. Exhaust hoses (I can think of at least one occasion when I could have used it for that purpose), water hoses, pencil grips, you name it, there’s not a lot you can’t do with the stuff.

I pick up a few rolls every year at the boat show. We’ll see how it does on the anchor chain. So far, so good.
