Install electric windlass

What ''fer'' said.
30 Sq. mm is roughly equivilent to #3 AWG cable.
Assuming a 100 Amp load @ 12VDC, you would begin to exceed 10% voltage drop @ < 70 circuit feet, that is pos. + neg. @ 35'' from source.
See the article "Ohm''s Law & Boats" in the March/April issue of "Good Old Boat Magazine"

Gord
