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

I wish I could post a pic for you. But I am not at my boat right now.

The chain locker on my boat is double: one shallower part nearest the bow, and a deeper one aft of that. Both share a lid. The vertical windlass is like a self tailing winch in that as the motor runs the chain flies into the locker and falls on its own. There is no "pipe". Given the depth of the locker, I only occasionally have to knock the pile down. The lid has a small notch cut in the side nearest the windlass to allow it to close fully with the chain hanging from the gypsy into the locker.

Hope this is clear!
