Marine Chain

Standard Arrangements for Ship

Each anchor chain cable having a length of 27.5 meters (15 fathoms) is connected with other chain cable by making use of Kenter Shackle or Joining Shackle.


For coupling the anchor to the chain cable, an anchor shackle is usually used on the anchor side and a swivel and an end link (and an enlarged link) on the chain cable side. Namely, the coupling !s made through an anchor shackle, an end link (and an enlarged link), and a swivel between the anchor and the first chain cable.

For storing the chain cables in the chain locker, the end link of the last chain cable is fixed with only a bolt or a shackle pin to the stopper of the chain locker
