Rode Length: The rode length is determined by the scope which is the length of the line or chain in relationship to the depth of the water. Under normal conditions the scope should be 3:1 ( example: depth being 10 ft and the anchor line would be 50 ft). If anchoring in rising tide conditions she scope should be 5:1, and 7:1 under adverse conditions.
