R36 Anchor chain size

Posted: 12 Oct 2019 - By: Martin Whitfield

I am about to replace the manual windlass on Topaz Rival with an electric version and and torn between going for 8mm chain and gypsy or 10mm. It seems that the old chain is somewhere between 8mm and 10mm and all the anchor sizing charts suggest that the combination of the R36's length and weight means it also fits neatly between the two. Very tempted to go down to 8mm to save weight and was wondering what other R36 owners had on board?
