Yet another windlass thread...

This is for a Tartan 37 (15.5K), Thinking chain to rope (5/16->5/8) rode, with 20kg Bruce, and potentially 65lb mantus.

Usage will be East Coast ICW, Gulf coast FL, & Carib.


Vertical or Horizontal?
700w, 1000w, or 1200w?
Chain & Rope lengths?

Requesting preferences, pics, and advice :-)

My current thinking is 90 to 100ft of chain, 150-200 ft rope, and most likely vertical for the potential of two rollers? Not sure on brand, and whether I should buy online or someone suggested Anapolis Boat Show in Oct.

Thanks in advance!
