Combination stainless steel chain/ galvanized steel anchor
Just to understand your point, it is O.K. to use an ss chain connected to a galvanized anchor with a good quality galvanized shackle?
I assume that you do use ss shackles for the running rigging or you avoid them altogether?
I heard that when the galvanized shackles fail they do not fail suddently but they deform first, so they give some warning. The ss shackles just break suddently. Is it true?
