Where to buy chain near Pensacola

Hello from the winter wonderland of Montana. I'm looking for a place to buy approximately 200' of G43 Acco chain near Pensacola. We'll be there in a month and I'd like to bring some home in the car to save the cost of shipping. Can anyone point me to a good place to buy chain in the area? Thanks.

Re: Where to buy chain near Pensacola

Not really too close to Pensacola, but not too far either. Worth the drive for sure. We just bought the same amount of 5/16" ACCO G4 from SOUTHERN SUPPLY in Biloxi, MS. 228-435-4401, 326 Howard Ave. It was $3.16 per foot, a few months ago. Not sure about today. Southern primarily caters to the shrimpers, but has many item of interest to pleasure boaters. That chain price was nearly half what West charges. They also sell the China version, but it is only slightly less. Just about everyone along the Gulf Coast buys their chain from Southern.

It might be that you can buy a half barrel as cheap as 200' ?

Thanks for the Biloxi tip. We'll be staying in Orange beach so it wouldn't be too bad. The 1/2 barrel is also an option but I haven't found a good price yet.

You might try getting in touch with Maggi Chains. They're located in Dania Beach, FL. I've been dealing with one of their reps, Pierre Bienvenu (pierre@maggichainsusa.com); tell him Rob Grant sent you.

Check with Zern Rigging in Pensacola, FL. I have dealt with them in the past concerning upper shrouds and the service was great. Rick Zern 850-261-4129.

Might call first as they sell a lot and do not always have all types and sizes at the same time. Drums and half drums are a available also.
