Dawg...the Anchorman specs say either HT or BBB can be used and BBB is more compatible with a wide range of electric windlasses made today. No doubt HT is stronger...and you can always find a windlass and capstan to fit...I was just trying to recommend chain that would be both SUFFICIENT to his purpose and COMPATIBLE with the widest # of windlasses he might consider down the road. No argument.
BTW...I assume you have the manual anchorman with the circular take up rather than the traditional vertical pumping action type. How do you like it? Do you get sufficient leverage to make it relatively easy to haul anchor or would you choose differently next time?
