Thanks for you replys so far. Cam..I agree that having 2 dedicated gypsies and hawse pipes is the optimum way to go. We have not chosen the windlass as of yet and will consider carefully. John....our issue is in dealing with 2 heavy and long chains. Primary is 300 ft and secondary will be at least 100 ft. So it becomes an issue when we try to get the 100 ft of chain up when raising the secondary anchor with the primary chain contained in the 1 gypsy that we would have.
