Thanks much for that!
I saw an old article of yours of when you changed the windlass to a V4 and started looking at this model. Our configuration is kind of strange, the motor is mounted above the Vberth, almost above our heads and enclosed in a box...Hence, I need to orient the motor forward(towards the bow) so it can fit in the box and not completely take the entire space above our heads. Athwartship would not work as I would have a hard time getting in the Vberth to sleep.
I saw from the online manual that it does not really have a forward position, looks like it might interfere with the chain drop?
I could post a few pics if that would help to visualize better...
Ps. just wanted to send Beth our best, we met her at a gam in the Chesapeake bay
