I bought those little plastic inserts recently and love them, takes all that guesswork out of leaving sufficienti scope; as I would find myself anchoring in 15 feet and then continue to let chain out "to be on the safe side" until I realized that I was almost at the end of my 250" chain!

My poor man's solution is coloured cable ties. They survive the windlass surprisingly well.

Zanshin....do you have a source in the USA for them? I just spray paint in different colors every couple of years at 10 fathom intervals so I have 6:1 rode in multiples of 10ft of water depth...but the inserts look pretty neat.

I just spray paint every 50 ft and use cable ties. One tie for 50, 2 for 100, one for 150'. I usually end up with 100' of chain out most times, as long as there's swinging room. Seldom anchor in more than 15'. I have 200' of chain and 150 ft of 5/8 3 strand spliced on the end. Oh, yes I also have a tie on about 20' so I know I'm coming up to the anchor when weighing anchor in muddy waters.

I bought mine at Budget Marine in St. Martin; but I think the manufacturer was in Italy and looking for the name, "chain rainbow markers" didn't give me any hits in the US.
