Weigh down a rope rode

Weigh down a rope rode
Posted 2018, Jul 27 14:25
If I have only an all rope rode and I'm in a tight anchorage area, so I can't let out 7:1 or more scope, could I weigh down the rode significantly close to the anchor, so that it simulates a chain rode? This way the force on the anchor would always be more horizontal and therefore it should hold well, even with a smaller scope.
