Re: Paint to mark anchor chain?
I am a full time liveaboard on the hook 98% of the time. I have tried several different paints [ not model dope or nail varnish ] but nothing survives long on a sandy bottom. Sometimes after just one month almost all is gone.
Cable ties work well and that is what I am curently using. I use different colours double them up and replace annually.
What lasts longest is nylon string. Knots to show the length. But they are hard to see esp at night.
