Anchor Chain Marker by abauer Nov 7, 2012

Description

For a safe anchorage, 5-7 times of the water depth in length of chain should be put out.

This markers can be printed in different colors to mark the anchoring chain at different length. The length of the chain can be determined by the colored markers.

Two parts need to be clipped together in a chain link as shown in the image.

Suitable for a 13mm chain according to the dimension of standard DIN 776

Yes it goes thru a windlass.

Normaly a windlass touches the links only on the outside of the links. The chain marker is inside the links.

Will this go through a windlass?

I printed it in ABS. I anchored only 2 time and no damage to ABS. Sailing season hasn't started in the Med so I did check whether its still o.k..

I have no experience with PLA in sea water. To test PLA's sea water resistance you can take a piece of PLA and put it in sea water or for convience in salty water at home.
