Works pretty neat and the two of them get their RIB on the foredeck with little strain to eithers back,

Good Luck.
Wouldn't have thought about that trick, thats just great! I do have a Windlass, but I leave my anchor chain on it most of the time. What type/strength of block are they using for this purpose?
