George and Rayna Shaunfield

On my W28 (no sampson posts) the original owner mounted a strong pad eye through-bolted to a bulkhead below the V-berth and attached about a 7 foot length of 3-strand nylon with eyes with thimbles spliced on each end. The all chain rode is then shackled to that. This allows about 2 feet of nylon to extend above the chain pipe on deck in case it needed to be cut (like Randy noted).

Can anyone think of a better setup on a boat without sampson posts?

George
