Anchor Chain, in or around Pompey

All

Anyone suggest the best (Cheapest) place to get galvanised anchor chain around Pompey.

My plough type anchor dragged a couple of times this year.

Hardly surprising really as its only on the end of 2M of chain!!

I want to add at least another 4M to it.

Hadn't thought about B&Q, I'll have a look on the way home.

Not sure I would go for B&Q chain, it's more for keeping ramblers out of your garden.

I would nip down to Chez Jackeen and visit Mairine Superstore. The should be fairly competitive, pricewise.

This is true. Not only has my boat stayed where I anchored it but I have had no ramblers in the garden either!

Good news about the ramblers.
I only remember seeing light long link chain in B&Q, which woud not even secure a Jack Russel.
Must look harder next time.

How does it stop ramblers? Do you swing it at them, havent got a major problem with them just a few kids sitting on my wall. Will it work with the oiks?

Nasher, there is a place near Fareham Creek that seems to do cheap deals in that sort of thing. I can't remember the name at present though, but it is part of Hardway Marine. Just follow the road that goes to Fairweathers and it's next to a motorbike garage in an industrial unit.

Nasher, have a word with Aging Youth - I'm sure he could spare you 4m from the wheelbarrow load of chain that he has on Southcoast II

Yes. Works especially well if you leave a 5kg Danforth anchor on the end before you swing it
