Replaced anchor locker chain hook\chain and re-bedded the chain locker drain hose

End of September 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay, Mexico

We replaced this chain hook with a new 3\8 SS chain hook 
and a SS shackle. We also replaced the old painted chain 
with some new chain. No more rust!

Wow! :) 

We mostly use the chain stopper but we can use the chain hook or even take a wrap around the cleat in the anchor locker to hold the chain if need be.

We also removed the anchor locker drain hose which was leaking a little water in a heavy rain. Debbie then applied some silicone to the hose barbes and re-installed the hose. No more leaking. (She can get in here a little better then I can!)
