Amel has used the German-made stainless steel Wasi PowerBall swivel for many years on ALL galvanized or stainless steel chain, with almost all installed on stainless steel anchors. PowerBall isn't really like any swivel made by others. For more information, Google it.
BTW, like it or not, I am the self-appointed guy that reminds all of us to respect Captain Amel's decisions. And, when I am evaluating an Amel for prospective buyer/client, I look for all indications of any disrespect of the Captain's design decisions. I am not sure what the actual number is, but I believe that the Captain was 99% correct. Of course, that is my opinion and I understand that it could be argued.
