Re: Maramu anchor and chain suggestions

Thanks for providing the link for the chain shackle, that looks like a positive way to connect a snubber. As it turns out I am preparing an order through SVB so this was good timing. We have always used a snubber since we also consider it to be essential but I want to have several backups prepared and ready to add if needed. It seems to be difficult for find Nylon line in Italian Chanderlies for some reason so I will bring more with us on the next trip over. I have also decided to try eliminating the original stainless anchor swivel used on my Bugel for the chain to anchor connection also over concerns of it potentially being a weak point though it has never given us a problem. If I start having problems stowing the anchor due to twists, I will revisit the swivel options but otherwise fewer connections seems like the way to go.
I think I will go ahead and order the 100m of the 10mm chain and try Tom’s solution to deal with the chain castle problem. Worst case scenario I can always cut some off if it becomes too much of a problem.
I just looked again at the weight of 8mm chain and this time what came up was 14kg for 10m. I might have made a math error or typo in my previous post.
