and I need 3/8" BBB chain

Seeing Daddyo's post made me realize that I still need to find about 300 ft of 3/8" BBB chain.

Currently i have about 30 ft of chain and 150 rode on one anchor.
I want to make that my secondary anchor and use 300 ft all chain on primary.

I would like to do it as soon as possible, thinking that it may be cheaper to get in Florida while I'm still there.

I think I did see it at Marine Liquidators in Ft. Pierce for about $3.80 /ft, which at the time seemed expensive.

3/8 BBB is the workhorse stuff and easy to find. Not in FL but look up Chain Supply out of NJ I believe. They ship anywhere and have a good supply of all attachments needed
