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.

Do you know how well pla will withstand seawater?
