It's amazing how this simple question morphed into a discussion on anchor types & rope vs chain???
Morphing is a speciality of the forum. we tend to do more morphing than a host of caterpillars.(Not sure if a group of caterpillars is called a host though).

By the way nice looking boat.

"Our ground tackle is woefully inadequate so I'm doing research to upgrade it."

If I was concerned that a screw would loosen on a clevis I would either use loc-tite or stake the threads with a center punch.

I've always felt a bit silly putting safety wire on old shackles that are hard to turn but I keep doing it.

Motion 30,
What end do you refer to .. the threaded right?
You'd need longer threads and I think screw pin shackles have tapered threads. One could drill out the threads and employ a hex cap screw w a cotter pin hole. Then you'd need to re-galvanize too. Putting a flat washer between the nut and the shackle ear would boost security. I think I'll stick w safety wire.
