Re: [Amel] Anchor Chain 10mm Galv - Source in Turkey
You can find galvanized chain in almost everywhere in SW Turkey, however they come in a wide spectrum of quality. Hence you should avoid typical small village chandler. You should check reputable chandleries, such as Senturk (across westmarine in Marmaris) or Westmarine itself (Marmaris - Bodrum, etc) for a high grade chain. There are dozens of online options, they deliver to where your boat is, but 100m 10mm chain should weight about 250 kgs, so it may be problematic ( www.denizdukkani.com/Galvaniz_Zincir , http://www.marintekstore.com/ , http://www.tekneyeparca.com/ , etc..) . If you will be heading towards Izmir, or better yet, Istanbul, you can get very high grade chain directly from the manufacturers.
Hope this helps,

Subject: [Amel] Anchor Chain 10mm Galv - Source in Turkey
Does anyone have a recommended source for 10mm Galv chain in Turkey? Ours is getting tired and I heard someone talking about the excellent quality of chain made in Turkey.
Any comments will be appreciated.
