      Boat Anchor Chain & Shackles

      To understand the importance of boat anchors and shackles, you need to know how an anchor works. Anchoring a vessel is an important function to assure a boat or ship remains stable in the water. Anchors are used when the boat engines are shut down. The first step is finding an ideal location. The boat then slows down by reversing the thrust and the anchor is subsequently dropped. You must have strong anchor chains and shackles to handle the weight of the anchor and long enough so that the anchor reaches the sea bottom. 

      For the next step, the boat must be reversed. This is called going astern so that the anchor digs into the seabed and the boat position is secured at the bow. Once the ship is anchored, the chain needs to withstand the force from rough weather conditions including wind so that the vessel doesn’t drift. When it is time to weigh the anchor, the chain endures considerable strain- more than when an anchor is dropped.

      Purchasing boat anchor chains and shackles with sufficient strength to support every aspect of anchoring is essential. As part of ongoing maintenance, anchor shackles and chains need to be carefully inspected for visible rust and frays.

      When it is time to replace these components, rest assured that Wholesale Marine carries anchor chain and shackles in varying tensile strengths to ensure safe and optimal anchoring season after season.

      Typically lightweight tow boats utilize vinyl coated steel or nickel anchor chains. Galvanized and stainless steel anchor chains and shackles are the ideal choice due to their strength and durability during the majority of fishing and boating applications. Wholesale Marine proudly carries products from Sea DogGreenfieldSea SenseWhitecap, and AnchorLift.
