Re: Paint to mark anchor chain?

I painted my chain every 30 feet. First 30 I made one mark and then two marks at 60, 3 at 90. I used a orange red paint used for auto engines just because I had it in the garage. I did clean the chain with muratic acid first. I do not know how it will hold up. I was actually repainting it. It has worked well but was wearing faint.
