Corrosion

Today’s life lesson:  inspect your moorings at least once a season.  One look at this picture explains why.  Five+ years ago the top chain was identical to the brand-new 1/4″ hot-dipped galvanized chain below. The entire chain is corroded, but the pictured area wore faster because it rubbed the lake bottom and rocks and sand continuously removed the accreted corrosion, reducing the remaining metal to about twice the diameter of a large paper clip.
