factory wiring for 31 windlass

I've been busy installing my H3 lewmar horizontal windlass, it is physically mounted and it's time to wire. My boat came pre-wired for a windlass and the 2/0 cables come from the anchor locker to a removable panel behind the battery selector switch. (The current is 85amp, CB 110amps)
The removable panel is in the hanging locker. After studying the cables and switches I noticed a jumper from the emergency crossover switch (bat 2) to a distribution block with 4- 5/16 threaded terminals. Nothing else is on the distribution bus Hummm... I dug out my manual and looked at the boat wiring schematic and it does indeed show a windlass breaker feed from this distribution bar.(150amp no less) All the wiring to the battery switches, the jumper,the emergency cross connector as well as the cables leading back to the starter and battery banks are 0/0 wire.
This set-up would save me a ton of work, feed the circuit breaker from the bus, mount the CB next to the battery switch, land the black on the neg bus and I'm good to go.
Can anyone with a factory installed windlass verify this? Thanks.

Regards,
Steve

Hi Larry,
Here you go.
Just check and make sure your battery wiring is 0/0 if you intend to wire a windlass according to this schematic. The standard battery wiring for a 31 without a factory windlass installed is 2AWG.
