DOH! Luckily I subscribe to the concept "the only stupid question is the one that isn't asked".

Here I was visualising - I've got this hook in my hand - how is hooking that over a rope rode going to work.

in my opinion every boat should have a short strong rope cleated off with a chain hook on the end forward of the winch
Does anyone know where I can get a 8mm chain hook or claw with a locking pin? I have heard they are made but I have yet been unable to find one
