Anchor chain to anchor chain

Postby Seif911 » May 27th, 2013, 8:49 am

Good Morn' All,
Have you wondering with that topic, I bet? Ok, the 1st 3' of chain connected to the anchor is very rusty and rusting on my deck. I bought some rubber coated chain, 6' of it, but would like to keep the rest of the chain that is in the chain locker. I was wondering if there are any good connectors out there to connect the rubber chain to the rest of the chain. Any ideas? I can cut the rusted part off but don't want to lose all of the rest of the chain.

I have to say I was impressed with the light weight anchor holding this massive boat (massive to me!). I have had way heavier anchors not hold my way smaller boats. I have a feeling it was a lack of chain on my smaller boats. I think I am going to buy some chain for all of my anchors.
Thanks,
Steve
