Re: Anchor chain lock

I've never heard the term "anchor chain lock" before. Is what you have a chain stopper (common term)? A kind of flapper valve for the chain between the windlass and the bow roller?

Perhaps if you just posted the pic here it would get some responses.

Re: Anchor Chain Lock

It is actually a "chain tensioner" used to hold the anchor tight in its chocks. If I could ever figure out how to attach a photo on this forum, I would gladly do so. Looks like I am not the only one who has not figured it out, as I have not seen any photos so far.
Good luck on your future crossings of Bass Straits. We opted to fly from Sydney to Hobart after friends went up on the rocks at Eden.
