In surveying, the 'chain' means 66ft, 10 chains = 1 furlong, but this is a different use of the unit of chain length. ________________________________________________________________ In the imperial system of measurement there are two units referred to as a "chain". As already stated the usual measurement is the Surveyor's chain (also known as Gunter's chain) = 66 feet. The Engineer's chain = 100 feet. So 75 feet is equal to 1.136 chains, or 0.75 Engineer's chains
A shot of chain is 90 feet, or 15 fathoms.
A shot of chain is 90 feet. The weight of 90 feet of chain will depend upon the type and guage of chain.

If you hear any noise from the chain it needs replacing.
