I need a 150 feet of G40 5/16 chain to go with my Lewmar Pro 1000 I'm instaling. Any cheap suggestions?

Here's the best place to get it. Free shipping too. Where's your anchor??

Sorry I'll get pictures of my anchors. Well it's a 35 pound plow and also a Fortress, forget the weight but it's bigger than I need and I also have a 10 pound grapple in the 9 foot dinghy.

Well, I don't have a good photo of my anchor on my boat...but it's the same anchor as Maine Sails, a Rocna 15. That makes three Rocnas and a Manson Supreme and a Claw, so far at least.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
