We have 30m x 8mm Bradney chain on our main Delta anchor
. Galvansing quality looks good even after 3 years of use.
Problem with chain is how do you know its any good? Well we chose a UK company that deals with lifting chain as well as anchor
chains. When I spoke to them over the phone
with the Simpson Lawrence Gypsy
numbers so I got the right size of chain links, they knew right away what I needed. Chain arrived by courier in 48 hours packed in a large plastic container.
So hopefully we have a good quality chain, but without testing a few links to destruction I don't see how an individual could tell. Interestingly we have a 30 tonne test rig at work
, so for a few beers I might be able to test a couple of links when the new section head
settles into his post.
