I can pipe in on the stainless chain also. When i got the Bayfield it had anchor on board but no chain. I used a peice of stainless chain that had been around our shop for along time on it. It was 5/16'' and about 13-16' long. Worked out great. I anchored out every weekend with it in thick mud and the chain never showed any issues.

You can see it piled up in the front of the locker.
