Anchor Winch

Postby 033Shalom » 04 Oct 2018, 16:25

I'm planning to install a manual anchor winch. I was planning on placing it on the foredeck just aft of the anchor locker. However, to do this I would require a vertical winch which I don't think are manufactured these days. I'm looking around for a second hand S&L Anchorman but may have to go for the Lofrans Royal, which is horizontal and would probably have to be mounted in the locker itself. What arrangements to people have on their boats?

I know its been awhile and no responses ! Did you install a windlass ?
For future info. I have a Lewmar pro series installed in the locker. Both chain and rode are neatly deposited into lower locker no issues at all. lots of clearance for my extra Bruce and 25 meters of chain 30 meters rode. Can't imagine manually retrieving 3 feet of chain and rode!! Plus its off the deck and hidden away.
