Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Anchor Chain twisted in the locker after using some times
We have had a stainless Spade attached to a galvanised chain for 18 years. No sign of galvanic corrosion.

I think you have the correct gypsy if not replaced by former owner. It is market 203, this is correct for a 10mm ISO chain. So the Gypsy is not making the problem.
If you say you have the twist as well, then I guess the problem comes from the horizontal Winch who is turning the chain.
Meanwhile I have a galvanized Rocna as well and different dissimilar metals with the SS chain. I'm still investigating how the different metals does make re galvanic corrosion.
