A cat claw, dual action windlass, with a line drum on the end is all anyone need's, and patients! I was raised on board by my Grandad since I was 10 .Lived aboard ever since. I've learned the bare bones, no crap that will break method's. Now I realize my body is most likely to break next as I just turned 41. All this manual chain haul'n is about to end as This year I'm puting in an engine, and a winch on the bow. It's nice know'n I don't need 'em. But will be nice to have 'em.
