Re: Anchor windlass installation on CS36T - What's your set-up?

Hello Margo,
The installation you describe sounds less labour-intensive than modifying the anchor locker and that makes it attractive. I guess if your windlass is the type with an integral chain pipe the makes the 90 degree turn down off the gypsy, the locker lid has been cut away to accommodate this. If I am visualizing this correctly, given that the anchor locker is relatively shallow, do knock down the chain manually to keep it from piling up and jamming? Or does the windlass have an open gypsy, where you tail the road off it by hand and flake it in the anchor locker?
