Weakest link in anchor chain
I finally got around to pulling out the anchor chain from the bow of my 35' project boat. I was surprised to find 250' of 3/8 chain. Did not look like that much in the bow. Score one for me!, I thought, as I had finally found something on this boat that might be usable. However my jubilee was short lived when I found a single link about midway that was rusted most of the way though.
So the question is can chain be repaired. I hate to throw away 250' of chain because of one link. Any kind of user installed link will effect the chain going over the windlass.
