Anchor chain snubber

This snubber was built from a piece of stainless angle iron (with some cutting, bending and polishing).  It has a length of heavy 3-strand nylon rope spliced to each shackle with an eye splice on the other end for the bow cleats.   After setting the anchor we pass it under the chain to snag the chain and then ease the chain from the windlass so the snubber takes the load.
