It is a commonly held view here, our largest chandlery(Whitworths) catalogue has a warning:
"Stainless steel chain is not recommended for anchoring as it can work harden the chain which can make it susceptible to cracking"
Seems highly contradictory they even sell the stuff, I assume they are just protecting their butt. Even so, is there something to it, what do people think, what experience with ss chain have you had, seen, heard about?
