I have a 26ft boat and I use 12' of 1/4" galvanized chain & 150' of line with a Danforth anchor. I have had zero issues thus far. Also my mooring has 20' of 1/4" galvanized and 20' of 1/2" line attached to 3 augers sunk into the lake floor. The chain is well over 10 years and no issues at all. I did swap out the line last year though.
