You will need to find a solution to aid better chain collapse allowing the windlassto work more efficently. The permanent solution for this problem is to use stainless steel chain. When choosing stainless steel chain, quality is the most important factor. AISI 316L is the preferred choice over 316, if you don't choose "316L" over time you will start to experience problems with the chain welds rusting. We supply German Ketten Walder's, Cromox Grade 60 316L chains.
