Re: Anchor Chain Size

The old winch died one day before we were to acquire the new cables necessary to do the swap over. Had to hand winch up the last 8 metres or so and head back to marina (6 hours motorsailing). Anyways, we did the changeover to shiney new Maxwell and 10mm chain and headed out for another week or so. Very happy with the setup and happily held in a blow. Thanks again.
