Doug, The key to having the correct gypsy is not the size of the chain, it is the number of links per foot that counts. You need to check the number of links in a foot of the chain that you are currently using, and try to find a high test chain that has the same number of links per foot.
My SL catalog shows the 555 with a RCB70 gypsy will handle 3/8" BBB and 5/16" HT chain. That said, I do know that different manufacturers of 5/16" HT chain do have different number of links per foot.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
