There was a chain discussion on SSCA that I read a while ago that I was reminded of yesterday and can't get back in to see it because the site is down.
I recently loaded 275 feet of ACCO G4 in my chain locker. Have not anchored using it yet. It's been in there for a month at most, brand new.
I started pulling it out on deck
yesterday to mark it and it was all...best described as 'flakey". Sort of a powder as it came up through it's hole on deck
This sparked a slight memory of reading on SSCA that if chain is stored in an anchor locker
of bare fiberglass
it is harmful to the chain. This is a paraphrase. I think I even posted a question then asking if the glass was painted, is that enough? So, with all my chain on deck as I type, I'm wondering if bilgecoat paint
is satisfactory, is paint
, in general satisfactory...
