Thanks Margo, I think I've got it now. I have seen a couple of boats (not CS) with a vertical windlass in the deck just aft of the rode locker and no visible chain pipe through the deck. I assumed that one would have to manually tail the chain or rope off the windlass and flake it into the locker. Hearing that yours flies off the gypsy and into the locker makes this option even more appealing.
Can you tell me what make and model of windlass you use?

Alex,
I wish I could post a pic for you. But I am not at my boat right now.

The chain locker on my boat is double: one shallower part nearest the bow, and a deeper one aft of that. Both share a lid. The vertical windlass is like a self tailing winch in that as the motor runs the chain flies into the locker and falls on its own. There is no "pipe". Given the depth of the locker, I only occasionally have to knock the pile down. The lid has a small notch cut in the side nearest the windlass to allow it to close fully with the chain hanging from the gypsy into the locker.

Hope this is clear!

Ciao,
Margo
