Install electric windlass

I mounted an Ideal Vertical Windles. I placed it on a Teak pad and installed 2 foot pads to raise and lower the anchor. I ran double ought (00) wire from the cockpit locker were I mounted the breaker panel, solinoid etc. I used regualr battery cble from breaker panel to a 4D battery. Worked fine but running the double 00 wire was a pain. When completed no wire visible inside the boat and a neat, trim job on the bow.
