It's Official..Sandpiper Arrived!

Finally dotted the i's & crossed the T's on the purchase of our 2006 Ocean Alexander 42' sedan. We are super busy stowing our gear for a summer of marina hopping up the west coast.

Did I tell you that your anchor is the wrong kind, it is too small, and you don't have enough chain?

Practical sailor tests would not agree with your all the same concept of chain is chain. I suspect the cheap chain is true it is cheap and that may apply to more than the price. Chinese SS is also cheap and some of it rusts badly. The quality of metal is variable and if you want good quality you may have to do some research and pay more than cost of china chain. PS did point out in June 2014 that the basic G30 chain from a good manufacturer is probably a good way to go and that the HI test G70 and other higher rated chains may not be needed.
