Anchor Chain

There are four types of anchor chain commonly available. Proof coil, BBB, high-test and stainless steel anchor chains all have their own individual strengths and weaknesses which means that it truly depends on the needs of the boat and the boater when deciding which kind to buy. Using an all-chain rode has many advantages including its resistance to abrasion and its ability to help set the anchor more quickly and securely than simply using rope. However, many boaters prefer to use a combination of rope and anchor chain so that they can reap the benefits that both kinds of line have to offer.
