[Amel] Re: Anchor Cain Super Maramu...HT or BBB?

Anne and John Hollamby <annejohnholl@...>

Hello Gary,
I had my original chain re-hot dipped galvanised at a big commercial galvanising plant just north of Barcelona Spain in 2000 and it is still in good condition, I have yet to end for end it! The cost was about a third of the cost of a new one. I believe it to be HT.

Best wishes, Anne and John, Bali Hai, SM319

Hi Bill:

I am looking at replacing my anchor chain on my SM 2000 (Hull # 335). I have had good service from the original chain but it is time (now 12 years on).

I see that nobody replied to this post from 2010. Were you able to obtain an answer in some other way?

So, is it BBB or is HT chain.

All the best, Gary Silver s/v Liahona Sapphire Bay Marina, St. Thomas, USVI

I am looking for answers on SM2k anchor chain.

Here is what I know about the anchor chain on SM #387:
It is 10mm, ISO standard (the inside dimension the long-way of a link is 30mm...if it were DIN standard, it would be 28mm).

What I want to know:
Is it BBB, OR is it HT (high test chain)?

I would appreciate any help you can provide.
