For anchor chain it probably wouldn't last long. 

Better to get your chain regalvanised, then it will look like new, but lose some of its strength (maybe 20%).

Agree painting anchor chains doesn't work that well, short term at best.

East Tamaki Galvanisers are great, they are our 'go to', also Steelmasters in Penrose, both can spin the excess galv off making a far better finish.

Disagree about the strength lose, NZ galvanisers tend to be knowledgeable, East Tamaki is exceptionally so*, which means they don't over cook the chain which means minimal strength loss, if any. Take it to some R A G Galvanisers in the arse end of WhyKickAMoocow then I'd be concerned, very much so.

Comments do not apply to hi tensile chains i.e. above G40's, the game changes with those but next to none of you have them so no worries.

* - that is both galvanising and when talking suspect things seen in chains. If you take anything to them and they point out a problem LISTEN TO THEM, they have caught many scary bits n bobs.
