Windlass Anchor Chain

  • The chain is made up of a series of connected chain links.
  • Chain size refers to the diameter of the link material.
  • There are many different types of chain and standards on chain link dimensions in the world. (e.g. DIN 766 and ISO 818 for the short-link chain).
  • If you are replacing existing chain you will need to ensure that you have the right size.
  • For an anchor windlass to function correctly, it is absolutely essential that the anchor chain is correctly matched to the windlass gypsy.
  • If you are installing on a new automatic windlass then you will need a type referred to as short link chain DIN 766.


What is DIN 766 Short Link Chain
This is an agreed metric for chain link dimensions. It is now an industry standard and all windlass manufacturers build their product to suit this size chain.

Choosing the right size of anchor chain for your needs

 

                                                                                                        The anchor weight, chain length and warp must match the size of your boat to attain an effective hold.

 

Factors such as vessel windage, displacement, beam, length, existing chain size and overall what the vessel will be used for all marry together to determine the best size for you.

This isn't an exact A=B so it pays to err on the side of caution if in doubt. A slightly larger anchor will probably mean more peace of mind when you go to sleep on board.

This chart will help you select the correct equipment. If in doubt, choose a larger size especially if you spend a lot of time anchoring in heavy weather.
