Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Anchorchain, length



Your SM originally had about 75-80 meters of ISO 10mm chain. Unless you have considerable weight in the "deck sail storage lockers," you can carry 100 meters of 10mm galvanized chain. I would not recommend 130 meters because of the weight, and 100 meters will allow you to anchor in a 30 meter depth...remember as the depth increases, the amount of required scope decreases.
