I have found that the chain I originally used for mooring my floating docks in a fresh water lake were eaten up in a few years, but after switching to nylon or poly (forget which) lines they have lasted a decade.

I'm sorry to say I avoid facebook, don't care to publish my personal info worldwide and am concerned about the many security breaches there.
