Anchor Rodes & Chain
I HAVE A 19 FOOT SEAWAY MOORED IN 12 FT OF SALT WATER ON CAPE ANN. WHAT IS RECOMMENDED LENGHT OF CHAIN FOR MOORING AREA APPLICATION? SHOULD I GO WITH A 3/8, 7/16/OR 1/2 INCH DIAMETER CHAIN? HOW LONG WILL IT LAST BEFORE NEEDING REPLACEMENT??? WILL THE GREATER DIAMETER CHAIN LAST APPRECIABLY LONGER THAT THE SMALLER CHAIN? ISN'T THERE A GALVANIZED COATING ON THE CHAIN SURFACE?? SO ONCE IT IS RUBBED OFF FROM THE SURFACES WHERE THE LINKS RUB TOGETHER IT DOESN'T SLOW THE RUST THROUGH ANY MORE??? CORRECT? DOES THE THICKER CHAIN LAST LONGER?
Yes the thick chain does last longer than thinner. I use a 1" bottom chain that attaches to the mooring keeping it all on the bottom, then a 1/2" to the mooring ball. It's hard to determine how long they will last, it depends on the water. The 1/2" chain will wear quicker than the 1", you can bring up the chain to inspect it at least every 2 years to see if it needs replacing. I would use 15' of 1" and 15' of 1/2". Be sure you have enough room for a 20' swing.

Will your 5/16" galvanized steel anchor shackles (CLM-MC1647G) fit inside the links of this chain (1/4" size)?
You need to get a 5/16 anchor shackle follow by a eye and eye swivel "WC67638" which can go to a 3/8 or even 1/2 inch anchor shackle; this allows you to go to a bigger chain. Thank you,NathanJD Store(401)253-3840 ex130
Unfortunately the 5/16 anchor shackles are designed for the 5/16 chain, the designated chain that you've chosen goes with that corresponding shackle, thank you.NathanJD Store(401)253-2986 ex.130
I've been told to use a size larger shackles for a given chain size, since shackles are the weakest point. Were you able to confirm that they do not fit? Thank you.
What is the weight limit of the 1/4" 30 proof chain?
The working load is around 1300lbs and the breaking strength is about 5200lbs
As for "lite" chain from the heavier chain to the mooring, what would you suggest for a 10,000 lb. 28 foot sailboat in a reasonably protected moorage?
I had a Morris 28 and one point and now a Valiant 42. I am not sure exactly what chain you are referring to. Normally chain is used from the bouy to the anchor with a nylon bridle from the bouy to boat.I am conservative so I would use 3/8" Grade 40 or 7/16" Grade 30 in any case.
Is it possible to get a sample of this 3/16" chain?
Unfortunately, we do not supply samples of our products.
weight of galvanized chain per foot?
This is just another type of spam mail
What size chain you are talking about?JD sells 3/16" to 1/2" chain. It is high quality galvanized chain. Heavy duty.I dont know what it weighs per foot.
Installed my own mooring
Bought 40' of the 3/8" 30 proof coil chain to install my own mooring in our neighborhood cove. The chain was heavier duty than I expected, weighing over 100 lbs for the 40'. Cost a pretty penny to ship, along with a 200 lb mushroom anchor, but I couldn't find anyone local to purchase from. Seems to be of high quality, but I am no chain expert. Time will tell.
