Re: First overnight anchor ..

Just have the engine fired up ready to power if you need it. Have enough scope out and ride it out. Doesn't last long.

Re: Changing forward hatch direction

I had an aft facing forward hatch on our previous cs. IMO ventilation at anchor was poor. I turned it around and airflow improved quite a bit. My hatches or ports are NEVER open underway.

Re: Winching power for MOB
