Stainless really likes oxygen. It will eventually corrode if you use it as anchor chain. Being bunched up in a damp anchor locker along with wet nylon rode, etc is not good, when there are better choices.

I am almost certain that the welds in stainless chain are more brittle and will fail faster than galvinized.

My research suggests using G40 HT chain. I think that G40 and G4 are the same.
