This is a quality, high grade, marine stainless steel (AISI 316) DIN766 chain suitable for use in a windlass as anchor chain or other marine applications where high corrosion resistance is desired. Superb for anchor chain and general heavy duty work in a marine or chemically harsh environment. This chain will fit many standard windlasses. Please consult your windlass manufacturer model manual for the ideal specification for your windlass.

More details are in the spec table below, this chain is 8*24*27.5 (DIA*IL*OW). As DIN766 is a metric specification we list the specs in mm, the imperial equivalent of this chain is 5/16"*0.95"*1.08".

Item will ship via USPS. For very long chain lengths, shipping maybe via Fedex. For lengths greater than 60 feet a business address is required rather than a home address, due to Fedex's weight limit of 70lbs to a home address.
