I have 3 anchor warps with varying lengths of chain spliced to about 50 metres of octoplait .
99.9 % of the chain is still galvanised and clean but the interface with the octoplait is rusty. The rusty 6 inches plus chain looks good and the octoplait strands look Ok apart from being heavily stained but the whole splice is stiff as a bone and does not flex at all
Do I have a problem ?
I am inclined to cut off the splice and resplice on clean chain but is it worth it . Splice is tight Tempted instead to spray /soak with WD 40 and wash with fresh water . Any suggestions or cautions ?
