Here's a guide wire rope as an alternative anchor ship anchor chain binding.

Wire rope can be used as a substitute for anchor chain on the ship given size is as follows :

  • The length of the ship is less than 30 m, two sets of wire rope can be used as a substitute anchor chain.
  • For the ship with length between 30m - 40m one anchor chain can be replaced by wire ropes.
  • Length of wire rope should be 1.5 times the length of the requirements for the type of the ship to limit the use of chain tensile strength and breaking load equal to the chain.
