Ripping with a chainsaw - what chain?

Carole in VA
>Having a terrible time with chip (ribbons of wet wood!) clearance when ripping. Would a full skip tooth or half skip tooth chain help any? The chips are not building up in the kerf but seem to bunch up in the opening at the bottom end of the bar...between the bar and the housing.
