A Windlass That Makes The Grade

Chapter 13 of 14 in the Online Book Anchoring Made Easy—Vol 1, Gear

Morgan’s Cloud’s Ideal windlass

In this chapter I’m going to write about the capabilities you need to have in a windlass when the anchoring gets tough.

And these features are not just for those voyaging to the high latitudes. Just about anywhere 50-knot winds can come at you out of a summer thunderstorm or an unexpected wind shift can leave you anchored on a lee shore, and being able to set or weigh anchor effectively may save your boat.
