56 inches of chain would be enough for my installation.  That would give a little bit extra to be sure as Eric suggests.  

Of course, that assumes your installation is exactly the same as mine.

You just buy a length of chain a little longer than you think you need and a master (removable link).

You then drape the chain over the sprockets and mark it to the length needed.

Remove the extra links and join the chain with a new master link.


I assume you already have a rotary autopilot. You can remove the master link and measure the chain.

If it is a new installation just order more chain than is needed and do as I have written above.

Is there any that knows the length of the chain for the autopilot (rotary drive)
