For use in windlass? Be carefull not all chains are equal. When I bought windlass recently I thought a length of 3/8 chain I had was going to work. I took a link and caliper into wm and after looking at two different references with two different measurements we decided it was hi test. The chain link fell between the two measurements given for hi test. It wouldn't work in the gypsy as it skipped and jumped. I ended up getting a new 100ft length for around $400. Was surprised how competitive west was on price, they beat defender and the port supply truck delivered it to the shore near where I was anchored and helped me load it into dinghy. Still have length of chain in bilge. Little less than hundred foot and needs regalvanizIng but would part with cheap. I'm in jax now.
