2010 R25 Anchor Chain Diameter?

Postby Namaste on Sat Jan 19, 2019 5:00 pm

I have waited too long to replace my anchor chain on my 2010 R25 . Problem is, with all the rust and swelling of the chain I cannot determine what diameter chain I should get to replace it. I measured with a vernier and got readings from .320" to .380" . The more damaged the link , the greater the diameter. Anyone know with certainty what size it is supposed to be? I'd hate to order 50' of the wrong stuff.

I converted the anchor Rode on my R-25 from 5/16” to 1/4 inch HT. The reduction in size makes the anchor recovery much easier since the smaller chain self stacks in the locker. In addition the reduction in weight allowed me to convert from a road that is chain/rope to all chain.

I anchor her a few times a week and the combination Is excellent.

I changed the wildcat to 5/16 inch to 1/4 inch.
