New C&C 32 Owner Here

Hi, we just bought a 1981 C&C 32, I am looking for any help or tips and photo's if possible of anchor windlass installations. I have been looking around for information/advice and find that it seems to be a screw up waiting to happen, so many different opinions on the best way to wire them, to add a battery or not to add a battery and even whether to go with electric or manual. So if there is someone out there who has a C&C 32 with a windlass that works I'd be interested to know what it is, where it was installed and how it was wired (if it's electric).
Thanks,
John

That seems a small boat for a windlass, so I'd say go with a manual if possible, but figure out what you can fit somehow into the anchor locker so you don't clutter up the foredeck...

Certified...in several regards...

Here's a pic culled from a Yachtworld listing: No details but what looks a clean installation.

Thanks for that Faster, I know the owner of that particular boat so have been in touch with him already. The thing about the way this was done is the anchor has to be hauled off the bow and into the locker each time it's brought up, otherwise the locker door won't close.
