Nope
Like my 80% tread car tyres, it don't need replacing yet.
You can hardly see any wear on the galv at all

But I have said this before

Re: Storage of Anchor Chain

Storing the chain in oil or any other petroleum product sounds good and will most probably stop any further oxidation/rust - - but - - you might just get into a heap of trouble and financial grief when you finally drop that "oiled-up" chain into the local waters.
- - There will most probably be a rather large oil-slick surrounding your vessel and depending upon the local pollution laws you could be in deep do-do.
