Maxwell Winlass Chair Size

I believe the correct chain size is 5/16 BB. I use 100 ft then spliced onto 250 ft 5/8 rode. Virtually all of my anchoring situations have been with less than 100 ft chain, so I normally do not have to run the splice through the windlass (and potentially jam), In Florida now, I would be lucky to put out as much as 50 ft of chain.
