I am not sure I would want to be at anchor knowing a sharp pull and the boat is on the drift. That could come from wake, chop, a change of wind direction.

 

my trip is low diameter rope, knotted. The boat has to be over the anchor and considerable force applied before the rope breaks. I did use to use tyraps and to be fair I never had a them trip while at anchor however I found they would often trip before they needed to on the retrieve I got up to 6 being used thought this is this is getting crazy so tried thin rope. Obviously the knot must not come loose.... I use a double overhand loop.

this Just seems like over engineering for a simple task, maybe it was designed by my director haha

 

keep it simple with the cable ties/ thin rope

don't fix something that isn't broken,

 

its probably also because I am so tight and wont pay for something that I could lose whilst tripping the anchor
