Not if you have a windlass with a chain/rope gypsy. The thimble will cause the rode to jump out of the gypsy with bad consequences. If you're manually hauling up the anchor, then it doesn't much matter, but with a windlass, you want a proper rope-to-chain splice.

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.
