Does this make sense?

I had about 300' of chain anchor rode but I recently had to cut off about half because it was badly rusted (don't ask how it got that way ). I also have quite a bit of spare rope rode. One piece is 175' of 3/4" and another is 125' of 5/8's. My chain is 3/8's. What do you think of splicing one of these to the remaining 140' of chain? Right now I really don't need a 300' chain anchor rode.

Sounds like a great no cost solution to me. Either size rope should be sufficient.

That's what I did to begin with. Spliced 175' of 5/8" three strand to 150' of 5/15" HT chain. Never needed to us the nylon rode, but it was available if I ever needed the scope.

I did the same thing - 180' chain and 175' nylon.
