Dilute hydrochloric acid works on rust if you can somehow isolate the liquid from the boat.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rusted Ball of Chain in the Chain Locker

 

 

I've also discovered that the last 100ft or so of my anchor chain is rusted into a huge solid mass in the chain locker.  I've sprayed a ton of PB Blaster on it and beat it with a hammer without much success.  Right now I'm soaking it in Vinegar.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
