donradclife is on a distinguished road
We have a 30 ft snubber line with a chain hook, plus a chain stopper in front of the windlass. We lead the snubber linesaft to a halyard winch by the mast, pull in about 10 ft, then stop the chain and reset the hook. Its a lot of work, and we avoid deep anchorages until the windlass is fixed.
