We use 12mm chain through a Quick 1600W windlass
. It's a Lagoon 440
so 13.6M LOA
. We're not sure of exact weight, but we assume it'd be 14-15T fully loaded with fuel
(670L) and water
(900L) and gear
; the latter including a fair amount of stock for our business as the vessel works as a floating gallery of cruising comforts.
Back to the chain, we recently replaced the windlass
and through that experience noted that it was important (if you're using 12mm chain) to specify the chain spec. There was a general assumption toward the 10mm chain.
