Anchor Chain & Anchor Shackles
Whether you are anchoring for a quick swim or staying for the night, make sure your vessel has the right anchoring supplies to get the job done. Wholesale Marine carries an extensive line of chains and shackles from Sea Dog, Lewmar, Greenfield, Whitecap, and more.
Anchor chain is used in combination with anchor line, shackles, and swivels to ensure safe anchoring. The chain helps keep the anchor in the correct setting position for a stronger hold. It also helps prevent chafing and abrasion, which can occur when rope is attached directly to the anchor.
Anchor Supplies for Every Vessel
Anchor chains come in a variety of materials, sizes, and lengths for various anchoring situations. Greenfield offers PVC-coated Anchor chain in a variety of colors. The specially formulated PVC coating allows the chain to bend and coil easily.
Whitecap’s Stainless Steel Anchor Chain is a durable, corrosion-resistant option for saltwater boaters. It is constructed of 316 stainless steel and is available in a variety of sizes.
Anchor shackles and swivels are essential for connecting your chain to your anchor and line. Screw pin shackles are available in stainless or galvanized steel. Anchor swivels are an alternative to shackles that allow rotation to prevent your line and chain from snagging and getting twisted up.
Purchasing the right anchoring supplies with enough strength and durability is essential. Regularly inspecting this equipment can help avoid costly repairs from anchors breaking or not holding your vessel.
