Hi Bill

I'm sailed my SM for 2 Years in the Caribs and Venezuela and also more then 8 Years in the Med and Red Sea.
Amel told me altime that 50 m of 8 mm galva. chain is enough, but I use very succesfully 60 m of still galvan but 10 mm chain. Never changed this since 8 Years and no rost!
Stainless anchor chain is still to expensive withe no advantage.

Arnold, It seems that many boats here in the Caribbean are buying
stainless steel chain in either Trinidad or Venezuela. The price is
still more than galvanized, but much less than SS in the US, and
once you buy it, you shouldn't need to buy again. I can't quote you
exact prices, but I can get you the Trinidad price with a simple
phone call if you wish; just let me know. Bill on Lady Sadie
