Re: Anchor sizing
Hello Victor,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As you own an SM, a 10 mm chain is vastly sufficient.. even a G70 grade 8 mm chain is overkill.
There are 3 grades of chain G30 (lowest grade), G40 and G70. G40 is the grade installed by Amel. As a suggestion, we have a 35KG Ultra with 100 meters of G40 grade 10 MM chain. (We have been aboard 24/7 since July 15 and it never dragged. There is an additional 50 meters of 3/4 inch nylon line attached to the chain. In the Pacific, you will encounter anchorages where the water is 35 meters....
Weight is also a factor in the choice. Good luck and enjoy your Amel.
