Re: Chain to chain connectors on anchor chain

George, try 5/16. Also you can purchase "Anchor" brand chain from industrial supply house's at a much better price then WM. It come in 550' barrels. Maybe you can find somebody to split a barrel? 275' seemed to work fine in mexico for us and in the So. Pacific. I've cut off the first few feet a couple of time and regularly end for ended the chain and have had it regalvanized twice since leaving in 99. good luck.
