Re: Chain to chain connectors on anchor chain
Mark, can you comment further on your chain splice? Do you sister in a section of chain around the splice and then shackle it to your anchor chain? Why not forego the “C” link altogether and use the shackle directly?
Speaking of chain – we are a little more than two years away from taking our Catalina 34 down the West Coast of Mexico. I was thinking of going to an all chain rode consisting of ľ inch proof-coil and 200-250 total length shackled to a 35# ROCNA or Manson anchor. Your thoughts? (not sure, but I might have asked this question before). Do you recommend getting a chain gypsy replacement to the capstan head?
