Firstly, I'm looking for a chain stripper for a SL510 Hyspeed Windlass
. New from Lewmar
, they're $95, which seems a bit steep. Does anyone know of a good source or have an extra sitting around they'd be willing to sell? 5/16 G30.
Next, I have two 60' lengths of 5/16" G30 that are in decent shape. One has about ten links on the end that I intend to cut off, then I'd like to connect them. I'll likely use one of the C connectors available.
The question is, what is the "correct" way to connect this chain to my 40lb CQR
? Seems obvious, but the appropriate size shackle for the anchor
does not fit through the chain. What is the preferred method?
Eventually I'd like to move this chain to my 2nd anchor
(which is nearly all rode), and work
off 200' of 5/16 G40.
All will be used aboard a 32' Westsail (20,000 lb disp. full keel).
Thank you for your time!
