Electric Windlass Installation

Two points. Make sure that there is enough ''drop'' below the deck for the chain to fall and run without snagging the chainpipe. This is usually at least 18 inches.

Do not skimp on electric cable size. Use at least that recommended by the manufacturer.

I have just put an Lewmar Horizon 600 on my boat and report that I am delighted with the result.
