Re: Manual or Electric Windless??
I find that the weight of the chain is only going to pull the boat forward for retrieving the anchor if winds are below 10 kts.
Conversely, with chain hanging straight down while at anchor in winds under 10 kts, there are a lot of false sets that we never know about, as you don't drag the chain, let alone the anchor.
