Re: Anchor Chain
When we bought our SM in 2004, she came with 50m of 8mm chain. Lasttoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
year, we bought a new gypsy from Amel but you should be able to get
one from a Lofrans distributor as listed on their website or any
Lofrans supplier. We now have 90m (we had ordered 100m) of 10mm short
link hot dipped chain. Be aware that there are two sizes of short link
so match the chain to the gypsy. We have an anchor swivel between the
anchor and the chain.
We don't have a problem with storing the chain in the chain locker and
have not had any problems in that area. Nor is the weight a problem.
We did find that the chain peeler was catching the chain as we brought
it in. As we were not able to easily get a new one, we took it off. So
far, that has worked well. Don't use rope near coral.
Can't help with chain suppliers as our boat is in the Med and we are
