I need some help understanding anchor chain. I have not found answers in other threads so if they exist please point me there.
I am looking to purchase 5/16 HT. Here are my questions:
1. What is the difference between Schedule 40, 43, and 70 and is this difference important ?
2. What is the real weight per foot for 5/16 HT ? I have seen anything between 0.83 ponds to 1.2 pounds. Everyone does seem to agree that the SWL is 3,900 pounds.
3. Finally, I will use a chain hook on 3 strand nylon as a snubber. Is the proper length for this snubber to always keep the hook above the water ?
